Classification According to the synonymy in McIntosh (1910) the usage by Turnbull (1876) may be almost the first such use of Alitta as the subgenus of Nereis. The title uses Nereis virens, but in the first paragraph Nereis (Alitta) virens is used. Turnbull does not state a formal synonymy and the article is mainly biology [details]
