Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy Nereis splendida Grube, 1840 is junior to the combination Nereis splendida (Lamarck, 1818) (widely incorrectly cited as authored by Blainville). As the two taxa are not considered congeneric (Blainville wrongly considered a number of diverse taxa to belong in Nereis) and as they are not primary homonyms (created in the same genus) the junior name is not rejected (ICZN article 59.2). Several authors have regarded Nereis splendida Grube and N. splendida (which they thought to be originally authored by Blainville) as primary homonyms, but this is not the case. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy According to Gravina et al (2015: 155) the species described as Nereis splendida by Grube, 1840 is the same as Nereis falsa [details]
