Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorStatus Lamarck (1818: 319) was apparently confused by a figure captioning mistake in Montagu 1816 into creating a new name for Diplotis hyalina (not a polychaete). The spionid Montagu actually figured was his Spio crenaticornis, thus S. quadricornis is an objective synonym of S. crenaticornis. Johnston (1865: 204) synonymised the name to S. crenaticornis. Buchanan (1890: 196) also comments on this issue. [details]
