Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Even although nearly 40 years ago Hediste diversicolor was stressed to be the standard correct name for this common North Atlantic estuarine nereidid in an influential guide to Polychaeta (Fauchald, 1977), strangely the invalid combination Nereis diversicolor continues to appear in non-taxonomic works. [details]
