From editor or global species database
New combination This new combination was first established by Hutchings and Glasby (1986: 114): "As Verrill does not describe any lateral lobes, and, providing he did not overlook them, the species clearly does not belong to the genus Euthelepus. We questionably refer the species to Thelepus on the basis of the material examined from Bermuda which has notosetae beginning on the 2nd branchiferous segment". Later Londoño-Mesa (2009) supported this decision based on the presence of lateral lappets in Euthelepus, against its absence in Thelepus[details]
