From editor or global species database
Editor's comment Re-examination required? Hartman (1948:82) reported that the Amphiro type species had 5 antenna thus was a Marphysa. Amphiro is invalid. However, Amphiro pacifica Rullier is figured with 3 antenna, thus, if confirmed, would place A. pacifica as recombined outside of Marphysa [details]
