Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Not a Malacoceros. Often regarded as a synonym of Scolelepis squamata, possibly correctly (e.g. Pettibone, 1963). Alternatively, combined in Nerine, as a new name authored by Saint-Joseph which is a homonym replaced by Scolelepis cantabra Rioja. The latter belief and action is incorrect - see entry for Nerine longirostris. [details]
