Axionice conchilega (Pallas, 1766) 

Lanice conchilega  (Pallas, 1766)


The genus Lanice  Malmgren, 1866 is considered a synonym of Axionice  Malmgren, 1866 by Jirkov and Leontovich (2017) based on a phylogenetic analysis of morphological characters. Hutchings et al. (2017) consider the genus Lanice  valid but could not take the publication by Jirkov and Leontovich (2017) into account as it was published almost concurrently. There is general agreement that several Terebellidae  genera are in need of revision (e.g. Matos Nogueira et al. 2013, Jirkov and Leontovich 2017, Hutchings et al. 2017). We here follow the nomenclature of the most recent publication by Jirkov and Leontovich (2017) until more information on the generic affinity of several Terebellidae  species becomes available.
