    Definitions

From editor or global species database
Synonymy D. fimbriata is probably a junior synonym of D. concharum. However, Gibson (1997, 2015) has an alternative view that "Dodecaceria caulleryi in Europe was found through its reproduction to be the same as [thus junior to] D. fimbriata on the east coast of North America." In contrast, according to Petersen (informal Annelida list, Nov 1996) "D. fimbriata (Verrill, 1879) (originally as Heterocirrus fimbriatus) was described from the Bay of Fundy, based on an epitokous individual; it is either a junior synonym of the real, Danish D. concharum or a North American sibling species of this." [G. Read, 24 July 2014: Note also that Dodecaceria coralii (Leidy), 1855 may have been overlooked as possible senior synonym to D. fimbriata. This synonymy is in Hartman Catalogue p.408] [details]
