One syntype from Punta Arenas is nowadays deposited at the Natural History Museum of Denmark (ZMC POL-002151), while a second syntype, stated to be from Valparaiso and as making part of the original material, was deposited at the Zoologisches Museum, Berlin (ZMB Verm. 1561), but was destroyed during the 2nd World War (Hartwich, 1993: 90; Glasby & Hutchings, 1987: 979-980).

Etymology Not stated in the original description, uncertain. The specific epithet comata is a Latin adjective meaning 'long-haired' or 'having long-hair', and could refer to the presence of numerous long branchial filaments in the anterior region, which contracted are stated to reach about 1/5 the length of the worm: "Tentacula numerosa (contracta 1/5 fere corporis longitudinis aequantia)" (Grube, 1859: 109). Alternatively, it could refer to the fact that the notopodia extend to the rear end ot the body, near the pygidium: "Fasciculi setarum capillarium jam a segmento 3to (branchigerorum 2do), pectines uncinorum a 5to incipientes, cum illis usque ad postremum patentes (Grube, 1859: 109). [details]
