Taxonomy Kölliker introduces his new genus Branchiomma briefly in passing, while making extensive comments on Dalyell's species Amphitrite bombyx, thus ("Was das Aeussere der fraglichen Annelide betrifft, die ich mit dem Namen Branchiomma Dalyellii bezeichnen will, da dieselbe auf jeden Fall eine neue Gattung darstellt ..."). The name Branchiomma dalyellii is a superfluous species name as the new combination should have been Branchiomma bombyx [details]

Editor's comment Some authors, notably Johansson (1926, 1927), and the Hartman catalogue, and even recent authors, mistakenly treated Claparède's later use of Branchiomma as if it was a homonym accidentally introduced. This is incorrect as it is very clear he was using the genus name of Kölliker (he attributes the genus to Kölliker), although attempting to redefine it for his own species. [details]

Grammatical gender Genus Branchiomma is neuter, as deriving from the neuter Greek word for eye, omma, ommatos. Some authors from at least the 1880s recognized this, but others treated it as feminine. Of significant modern authors Knight-Jones (eg 1994) was probably first consistently to make gender corrections of existing epithets  [details]

The name Branchiomma dalyellii is a superfluous species name as the new combination should have been Branchiomma bombyx [details]
