From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Enigma terwielii is an unintentionally published species name that appeared prematurely in an obscure meeting report but also satisfies the requirements of publication of a name. The name was considered by Hartman (1967) in comparison with Flota flabelligera and Poeobius meseres and (as misspelled usages) by Fauchald (1977) and Rouse & Pleijel (2003). There is no material in existence. If it is a synonym of Poeobius meseres it would be the senior synonym, but it is an indeterminable taxon. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy Nomenclator zoologicus does not record Enigma Betrem, but there is an Enigma Newman 1842 in Coleoptera. This seems to be a misspelling of Aenigma Newman, 1836, thus would not be an available name as a prior usage and senior homonym. [details]
