Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Nogueira et al (2015:4) state: "Amaeana colei was described based on an anterior fragment of 5–6 segments (McIntosh 1926); we could not locate that specimen, but, even if we did, it would still be undeterminable unless complete material from the type locality is found, as with only 5–6 segments it is not possible to determine if the specimen belongs to Amaeana, Lysilla, Polycirrus or even Enoplobranchus, since the differences between those genera are only visible from midbody. Therefore, A. colei is treated herein as nomen nudum." [GBR: the status must be a nomen dubium, not n. nudum]  [details]
