From editor or global species database
Type species Cuvier (1817: 525) only names a Eunice species in a footnote, and the name he uses is as "Terebella aphroditois, Gm. Pall. nov. act." followed by four other species names, of which one only may be a valid Eunice but is misspelled by Cuvier . Terebella aphroditois was originally Nereis aphroditois Pallas. Fauchald (1992: 3-4) discusses several issues around what the type species should be, and declares it should be Leodice gigantea Lamarck 1818, but this does not seem possible, as it was not included in Cuvier's work. See Fauchald (1992) for the full discussion. Cuvier's connection with 'gigantea' is that a specimen in the Paris museum was labelled as 'Nereis gigantea', and the name was attributed to Cuvier by some authors, but he himself did not publish that name in connection with his Eunice genus. [details]

Etymology Cuvier (1817: 524) states in a footnote that he derived Eunice from the name of one of the female Nereides, stating "Eunice, nom d'une nereide dans Apollodore". This mention is a little unusual to see, as mostly authors of the time assumed readers had familiarity with the derivation of names from Classical times. Apollodorus of Athens was a Greek scholar and historian. [details]
