Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The species was considered to be a nomen dubium by Licher (1999), due to the very poor condition of the mounted holotype and single known specimen. According to Licher (1999), it is only possible to observe with some detail the chaetae and aciculae, and these resemble Typosyllis edensis Hartmann-Schröder, 1989. However, it was impossible to draw any other conclusions from the available type material, due to its condition.  [details]
