Publication date The exact publication dates of Dana´s papers and their relative priority are not always clear from the literature. This inconsistency has caused some confusion with regard to the publication dates of the oncaeid taxa he described (see under Antaria). A review of the complicated history of citation of Dana´s publications is given by Huys & Böttger-Schnack (1994).
