Synonymy The two names Nembrotha nigerrima and N. kubaryana were published simultaneously by Bergh (1877), the first one on page 451, the second on page 454. Yonow & Hayward (1991) treated the two names as synonyms and, acting as First Revisers, gave precedence to kubaryana over nigerrima. Pola et al. (2008) agreed with the synonymy, but rejected Yonow & Hayward's nomenclatural act, arguing that nigerrima had page precedence over kubaryana. However, the ICZN Code does not contain such a thing as "page precedence", and Yonow & Hayward (1991) action was valid - and this position has been repeated by Yonow (2011). [details]
