Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType material Apparent syntypes, but unexamined by Barnich et al., are at the Australian Museum registered as W.743. Benham said "The species is founded on four slender worms" which matches the number of specimens in that lot. Barnich et al. (2012:32) appear to have expected the material to be in New Zealand, as they state "Syntypes... deposited at the Otago Museum ... not available for study." However, it should not be inferred that the worms were present there, but access denied. Polychaeta from this Australian expedition appear not to be deposited in New Zealand.  [details]
