From editor or global species database
Classification Alciopa (type genus) and related holoplanktonic genera are thought to be part of Phyllodocidae, currently at tribe rank as Alciopini, although for many decades treated as Alciopidae, and independent of, but related to, family Phyllodocidae. For example there is an Alciopidae chapter in Parapar et al (2018, Fauna Iberica).
Ehlers (1894:176) named Alciopidae (as Alciopea) for Alciopa & Liocapa (he also misspelled them as Alciope & Liocape). Family Alciopidae is formally treated as a synonym of Phyllodocidae in Rouse & Pleijel (2001) "since it obviously forms part of that taxon", and the group of taxa is referred to as the tribe 'Alciopini', which Rouse & Pleijel included in the Eteoninae (as "we believe that Alciopini is part of Eteoninae"). Rouse & Pleijel (2003: 185) gave further comment but stated "the matter is complicated by ... uncertainties in the topology of the Phyllodocidae tree ...". A molecular study appearing to support the phyllodocid placement (Struck & Halanych, 2010) was found to have erroneous data, but a re-analysis confirmed Alciopina and Torrea at least (neither is type genus of the alciopids) as nested in Phyllodocidae (Nygren & Pleijel, 2010). A molecular analysis by Leiva et al (2018) placed unnamed Alciopina and Torrea species grouped with Eumida and Sige species (Eteoninae). A molecular analysis by San Martin et al (2020) placed Alciopina, Torrea, & Vanadis species, and their new genus Ctenophoricola, grouped with Eumida and Sige.  [details]
