Authority Aguirrezabalaga & Parapar (2014) stated that they "follow Salazar-Vallejo & Hutchings (2012) who propose Malmgren (1866) instead of Chamberlin (1919) as the author of this subfamily." However, this assertion seems inexplicable as both of the claims are incorrect. Malmgren is the author of Ampharetinae by the principle of coordination, but Malmgren (1866) did not erect Melinninae, and the Salazar-Vallejo & Hutchings article correctly attributes Melinninae to Chamberlin, 1919. [details]
