From editor or global species database
New combination Although Pettibone referred Nicon peruviana to Platynereis based on the paragnaths of the epitoke, she did not make a new combination, but instead treated it as "Platynereis sp." Therefore there is no usage enabling an entry under Platynereis in WoRMS.  [details]
