Etymology Not stated. However, Lamarck does describe "pectinibus duobus paleaceis auratis", which means approximately "with two golden combs of paleae" in reference to the anterior chaetae. Almost all authors have treated the name as feminine, and this is in accord with the adjective, pectinarius, a um, (see Lewis & Short Latin Dictionary) meaning of or belonging to combs. Used as a genus as Pectinaria it must be treated as a feminine noun form. [details]

Authority There is unnecessary confusion in literature over the authorship of Amphictene and Pectinaria. The original texts should be consulted. Although there are taxa where Lamarck appears to usurp Savigny's unpublished work, this is one case where Lamarck and Savigny are independent. It is clear that Lamarck (1818) authored Pectinaria and Savigny (1822) authored Amphictene. The respective texts are not at all the same. Savigny creates a detailed taxonomic structure of the genus with two tribes (tribu) for three species. Lamarck does not mention Amphictene or Savigny, but Savigny mentions Pectinaria (as P. belgica), but he gives an incorrect literature reference to it. Hutchings & Peart (2002:102) in their review are incorrect in their statement that "because Savigny actually made the description, we therefore quote it as Savigny in Lamarck, 1818", and they thus also have the authorships wrongly reversed when they attribute Amphictene to Lamarck. Savigny is the author. Earlier Hartman (1959) catalogue apparently attributes both to Savigny, although note that confusingly her bibliography reference is actually to the 1818 work of Lamarck. Hartman (1941:325) previously had the authorships correctly assigned as Amphictene Savigny, and Pectinaria Lamarck [details]

Etymology Not stated. However, Lamarck does describe "pectinibus duobus paleaceis auratis", which means approximately "with two golden combs of paleae" in reference to the anterior chaetae. Almost all authors have treated the name as feminine, and this is in accord with the adjective, pectinarius, a um, (see Lewis & Short Latin Dictionary) meaning of or belonging to combs. Used as a genus as Pectinaria it must be treated as a feminine noun form. [details]

Grammatical gender Pectinaria is feminine in its formation and has been treated as feminine since first used. [details]

Publication date Lamarck (1818:349) appears to claim he had previously published Pectinaria on p.96 of his 1812 work "Extrait du cours ...". It is referenced there, but he had only an undefined "Pectinaire" in a list of four names of tubicolous polychaetes, contrasted with solid-tubed worms (serpulids, etc). [details]

Type species Type species Nereis cylindraria belgica Pallas 1766, by a subsequent designation, probably by Hartman (1941:325), not Hartman (1959) as stated in Hutchings & Peart (2002), but Hartman could also have been copying an earlier author (as is often the case for her catalogue types of genera). [details]
