Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority Müller (1771) published a description of "Die nieren-formige Amphitrite" [kidney-shaped Amphitrite], but no binominals were included in the description. The content was later used by Bruguiére under the Latin binominal Amphitrite reniformis, and thus Bruguiére is the author of the name A. reniformis. Müller's informal name does not enter nomenclature. [details]
