Boccardia proboscidea Hartman, 1940 (Annelida, spionidae): specific name conserved
Abstract

The Commission has conserved the specific name Boccardia proboscidea Hartman, 1940 for a widely dispersed mudworm (family spionidae) from California by giving the name precedence over its rarely used senior subjective synonym Polydora californica Treadwell, 1914. The untypified name Spio californica Fewkes, 1889 has also been suppressed.
