Polychaetes and pesky flies

Those people who bailed out might have been a bit premature. This list is
going to be very easy to cope with I assure you. No other annelida traffic
yet so ...
to keep the 'avalanche' rolling I'd like to share this little oddity that
turned up today.
FROUZ, J. 1995: Description of Fannia polychaeta (Diptera, Fanniidae) larva.
The abstract contains the words 'polychaeta larva' twice and I imagine this
totally useless ref (only from the point of view of a polychaete
biologist!) is going to plague keyword searches for ever more. I don't know
how old the species is. Maybe it has turned up for you before? Are there
others like this?
It reminds me of the rather different Fly/Polychaete conundrum recently
related by Helmut Zibrowius et al. where it was the animals rather than
the words that were mixed up (ref was in Chaetozone-8).
Zibrowius H., L. Botosaneanu and H. A.ten Hove 1995: Un etrange cas de
confusion transphyletique: Potamoceroides giardi Munier-Chalmas in
Ferronniere, 1901 - Diptere Chironomide et non Polychete Serpulide.

Nantes, (n. Ser.) 17 (1): 3-8.
