Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority Alongside other well-accepted scaleworm families Kinberg (1856) included the family Iphionea [note spelling] for new genus Iphione for I. ovata n.sp. and I. muricata, formerly Eumolpe muricata. In her thorough review of the nomenclatural history Pettibone (1986:5) preferred to assign Baird (1865) as author of the family, on the sound basis that he first used Iphionidae with the 'idae' standard form of family name. However, Kinberg had recognised the taxon as a family-level group, and the code does not exclude early variant family name spellings based on the type genus. [details]
