From editor or global species database
Authority As can be seen from the description by Leidy (see image) here he was correctly recombining Aphrodita armadillo Bosc into the polynoids under "Lepidonote", a misspelling of Lepidonotus. Although he misleadingly adds his own name after the species name he can only be the author of the act of recombination [G Read, July 2016] [details]
