Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority 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]
