From editor or global species database
Editor's comment In WoRMS prior to March 2015 Websterinereis punctata was mistakenly placed as a synonym of the combination of Nicon punctata as earlier used in Hartman (1958), but there appears to be no usage supporting this. Websterineris punctata has been the valid combination since 1971. [details]
