From editor or global species database
Remark Please note that the lectotype designation of Microciona ambigua made by van Soest, 2002 (p. 590 and fig. 10) is wrong. The holotype described by Bowerbank was attached to a bivalve shell and is the specimen indicated as paralectotype by van Soest. Since there is no doubt from Bowerbank's description what the holotype comprised the lectotype and paralectype indications of van Soest are illegal and void.
It is quite possible that the SEM images of the lectotype given by van Soest concern a different species, Plocamionida microcionides (Carter, 1876 as Hymeraphia). [details]
