Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority A rare case of a quoted description justifying the authorship of Dyster in Johnston. Johnston reproduces a Dyster MS description and it is in quotation marks. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy Johnston used the genus Lepidonotus but he includes the MS name of Dyster, which was "Polynoe pellucida" As Hartman notes in her catalogue (p.105), this, if an available name,would be a junior primary homonym to the same name of Ehlers. However, as "Polynoe pellucida" is a nomen nudum here, this does not matter. However, McIntosh used Ehlers (1864) Polynoe pellucida in Lepidonotus, and this is a secondary homonymy with Ehlers name having priority when in the same genus. [details]
