Type locality Arctic, multiple locations. Malmgren had specimens from several locations, including Greenland and Iceland. The specimens figured were from Whalers Point, Storfjord, Edge Island, Svalbard, 77.3333, 20.5 (77°20’ N, 20°30’ E), 36-55 m depth. Krüger et al. (2022) state the type locality as "Only known from the type locality, Arctic, Svalbard." but this does not agree with the multiple arctic locations mentioned by Malmgren, each with a collectors name. However, possibly the deposited material was only that from Svalbard. [details]

From editor or global species database
Synonymy  Malmgren 1865 included four new species in his new genus Ampharete, but the first listed is his Ampharete grubei. He states (in translation) that "Grube has described under the name of Amphicteis acutifrons a species after a single small specimen from Greenland, which may happen to be found to be identical to this, but Grube's description contains so much information that is not appropriate for our species, that I do not consider myself entitled to use Grube's name for it." However, he includes Amphicteis acutifrons as a (questioned) synonym. Today we might write that mention as 'Non Amphicteis acutifrons Grube'. Hessle (1917) placed Ampharete grubei as a synonym of Ampharete acutifrons, where it remained for a century. Kruger et al (2022: 374) have resurrected the name as representing a valid species, based on part of the original material. [details]

Type locality Arctic, multiple locations. Malmgren had specimens from several locations, including Greenland and Iceland. The specimens figured were from Whalers Point, Storfjord, Edge Island, Svalbard, 77.3333, 20.5 (77°20’ N, 20°30’ E), 36-55 m depth. Krüger et al. (2022) state the type locality as "Only known from the type locality, Arctic, Svalbard." but this does not agree with the multiple arctic locations mentioned by Malmgren, each with a collectors name. However, possibly the deposited material was only that from Svalbard. [details]
