Taxonomy Diplotis hyalina is not an annelid. A complex figure numbering difference between the Montagu plate and the figure captions (corrected in an erratum slip) meant that Diplotis hyalina was by some authors wrongly thought to be figures 6 and 7 in the plate (actually Spio crenaticornis), rather than the actual figure 5. This assumption has perpetuated through the 20thC. Hartman catalogue (1959) placed Diplotis Montagu as a synonym of Polydora, but has no reference to the species Diplotis hyalina. Spionid taxonomists such as Foster (1971:18) and Light(1978:164) included Diplotis Montagu in the synonymy of Polydora, perhaps following the mention in McIntosh, but his inclusion in a synonymy was not in relation to Montagu's Diplotis but to Garner's subsequent usage for a spionid (McIntosh's Diplotus [sic] for Diplotis usage of Garner, 1838 [1841] referred to Polydora ciliata) [details]
