Authority In brief the author of A reniformis is Bruguiére but the history of the name is complicated. Müller (1771) published a description of "Die nieren-formige Amphitrite" [kidney-shaped Amphitrite], but no binominals were included in the description. Müller's informal name does not enter nomenclature. The content was later used by Bruguiére (1789?: 57) in an encyclopedia organised by genera under the Latin binominal Amphitrite reniformis, and Bruguiére used the abbreviation 'nob.' (nobis = ours) with the name, thus Bruguiére was taken to be originating author of the binominal A. reniformis in several Knight-Jones publications, including Knight-Jones (deceased) et al. (2017). However, in the volume of Bruguière plates (1816? to 1830: 134) Gmelin's usage (p.3110) is credited in the captions. Gmelin is the author of the 13th edition of 'Systema Naturae ...'. of which the first part was published 1788, but the Vermes (vol 1 part 6) was published 1791. Thus Bruguiére was months earlier and remains the author of Amphitrite reniformis. The later mention of Gmelin in the plates atlas is only intended for cross reference, although it is interesting that Gmelin does not mention the usage in Bruguiére. The eventual title page date for Bruguiére's work is actually 1792, but according to Evenhuis & Petit (2003 corrections) the first installment up to page 344 was circulated in 1789 and the 1792 title page is a later replacement. Possibly the two contemporaneous authors Bruguiére and Gmelin used the name independently at the time, each deriving the name from the original entry in Müller, but it seems likely that Gmelin had available to him the 1789 part of Bruguiére. [details]
