Taxonomy Augener made the following comments about N. languida Kinberg [in rough translation] "There is no trace of the original specimen of these nereids; it is not recognizable again without new comparison material from the same place of discovery. Kinberg placed it in genus Nereis: it is therefore a nereid in the strict sense, with conical paragnaths. The groups were absent in the groups I and V, and the groups VII and VIII were not interrupted, and must have formed a transverse band or the like. The dorsal cirrus was median and not terminally inserted, so it is presumably a species with posterior, customary, flagless parapodia."
"A nereis with the same species name was described by Grube according to the material of the Novara journey (1867) from the subgroup Perinereis, which was renamed by Ehlers in N. nancaurica [sic]. It is a species with rear flagless parapodia."

Homonymy Senior primary homonym to Nereis languida Grube, 1868, thus Ehlers (1868) provided a replacement (Nereis vancaurica) for Grube's original name. [details]

Specimen Swedish Museum of Natural History, Stockholm. However, the original specimen is lost fide Augener, 1922. Hartman (1948: 68) confirms this, stating the vial labelled with the name is empty, and commenting that Kinberg's description is preliminary and incomplete, thus the species is indeterminable [details]
