Publication date Johnston writes "This worm has been already published under the name of Bebryce Peripatus (Thompson's Rep. on the Fauna of Ireland, p. 273), but, having discovered that the generic name has been used by Philippi, I am under the necessity of changing it." This is correct, except that Thompson's 1844 checklist name is an unavailable nomen nudum. [details]
