Synonymy Humann & DeLoach (2002) in a field guide used Bispira variegata, having previously (1992, fide Knight-Jones & Perkins,1998) used Sabella variegata. It seems this work has resulted in Bispira variegata becoming a name widely used by divers and photographers. In taxonomic usage Knight-Jones & Perkins (1998) determined a synonymy with B. melanostigma and advocated retention of B. melanostigma instead as it was in prevailing usage in the scientific world (taxomomically and for field biology). Tovar-Hernández & Salazar-Silva (2008) reinforced this view, citing the reversal of precedence rule. Strict conformity with Art.23.9 is debatable, but a case can be made. The situation is not yet clear cut. [details]
