Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Schmarda's Colobranchus tetracerus (from "K├╝ste der Bretagne, im Sande") is figured with prominent prostomial lateral 'horns' and clearly is a Malacoceros or related genus. Past incorrect assignments to Scolelepis (pointed prostomium) relate to other concepts (eg. Fauvel, 1927) of Scolelepis. [details]
