From editor or global species database
Classification 'polydorid' and 'polydorin' are used informally for the Polydora-group genera. Polydorin would be the informal term for Polydoridae downgraded in rank to tribe Polydorini. Some authors currently use this term, without formally stating that is what they are doing, but Radashevsky, 2012 does use the formal wording 'Polydorini Benham, 1896'. [details]
