Editor's comment A dubiously available meeting report name, in content not written by Esmark. As the name is not in use it seems unnecessary to invalidate it further, although it might strictly be a nomen nudum until clearly named by Bidenkap (1895). Of modern authors Gaston & Benner (1981) regarded Esmark (1874) as having created an available name. Wesenberg-Lund (1938) credited the authorship to Bidenkap (1895). As the name Eteonopsis first appears in print five years after its subjective synonym, Ophryotrocha Claparède & Mecznikow, 1869, there can be no dispute which is valid by priority. Gaston & Benner (1981) state that "Wesenburg-Lund (1938) must have been unaware
that Esmark provided the original description (albeit poor)", but this is hardly possible as Bidenkap gives the species name authority to Esmark. The alternative is that Wesenberg-Lund did not regard the meeting notes credited to Esmark as establishing an available name [G Read, Jun 2019] [details]
