Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Genus reassignment pending. Perhaps a Neanthes. Probably does not belong in Hediste (fide Sato & Nakashima, 2003; Bakken & Wilson, 2005). "Fused falcigers were not described for H. kermadeca (Kirkegaard 1995), making the placement of this species in Hediste doubtful." [details]
