Taxonomy Pettibone (1970) points out that Tyrrhena atlantica Roule is a homonym, but this is not strictly correct. Recombined as Leocrates atlanticus it would be a junior secondary homonym to L. atlanticus (McIntosh, 1885), original name Dalhousia atlantica. Ironically McIntosh used Tyrrhenia atlantica Roule more often than his own species name (eg in McIntosh, 1901), and recombined it as Leocrates atlantica [should be atlanticus for gender agreement) in the British Annelids monograph (1908). There he shows (p.133) he was aware the two were almost the same in morphology. [details]
