From editor or global species database
Editor's comment Authors headline their new species as "Parasabella crassichaetae sp. nov. complex", because of the range of their molecular data, and some morphological variation (shown in a table) but a holotype can only be the one species, thus Parasabella crassichaetae. It is not clear if molecular data is available for the holotype and paratype. If other material does not agree with the holotype, then it does not belong as part of the original description, but could be part of the discussion. The "complex" mentioned can only be at the subspecific or lower rank at this time. [details]
