From editor or global species database
Editor's comment Although Hartman (1948) regarded Laomedora fusifera and the other dried syllids as indeterminable, syntype specimens of Laomedora fusifera exist and are believed to be a valid species in Syllis (pers comm to editors). As this information is unpublished, we have not transferred Laomedora fusifera to Syllis yet. [details]
