Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority Authority corrected to Ehlers (1901). Rouse & Pleijel (2001:84) pointed out that Southern (1914) is not the author, contrary to the wide modern usage derived from the Hartman catalogue (1959:124) and repeated in the Fauchald 1977 guide. Southern himself had stated that Levinsen (1887) had created the family name, but this is not correct either. However, widely used monographs by Fauvel (1923), Hartman (1939), and Day (1967), and the Australian "Polychaetes & Allies" overview by Hutchings also incorrectly named Levinsen as the family author. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment As well as Pisione, the other minor genera apparently belonging in Pisionidae (Anoplopisione, Fauveliella (synonym of Pisionidens?), Pisionella Hartman, Pisionella Aiyar & Alikunhi [homonym], Praegeria (synonym of Pisione), Pisionidens, and Sylloides) have here been moved to Sigalionidae. Caveat: Norlinder et al's 2012 examination was restricted to characters of Pisione and Pisionidens.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Possible subfamily status as Pisioninae. Molecular reports on the position of Pisione and Pisionidae have simply stated that Pisionidae is a synonym of Sigalionidae. There has been no suggestion that the name be maintained as a subfamily in Sigalionidae, although this might be convenient. [details]
