Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Savigny (1822:89) includes a number of pectinariids as synonyms of Amphictene auricoma, including Pectinaria belgica, which is type of Pectinaria (as Nereis cylindraria belgica). However, he also has two other Amphictene as valid. Amphictene auricoma is prominent as the first mentioned, and is type of the genus 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]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority There is unnecessary confusion in literature over the authorship of Amphictene and Pectinaria. 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. [details]
