Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Hartman catalogue records this name as 'Millepeda marina amboinensis Seba in Audouin & Milne Edwards, 1833' but in their work it is as a name only as a synonym of Amphinome carunculata, thus better marked as a pre-Linnaean subjective synonym.
The placement of Audouin & Milne Edwards (following that of Pallas?) should be viewed with caution as it is unknown if they had access to the specimen, but the figure seems to be at least of a similar amphinomin species. Quatrefages (1866:396) pointed out the locality was from a different part of the globe to that then known for A. carunculata (now in Hermodice), and he doubted the identification of Pallas, and of Audouin & Milne Edwards. [details]
