Johan Craeymeersch enquired on D. concharum/fimbriata:

I would imagine in the papers cited by Gibson in that paper and cited in
his BZN paper. However, as most people know, Peter Gibson is advocating a
rather dramatic solution to his problem in nomenclature to the Commission.

Johan may have received more informed responses from those directly
involved. I would just like to mention that Pleijel and Mackie (Sept. 1995
Bull. Zool. Nomencl. 52(3):261-62) oppose Gibson's namings, and I believe
there are other rebuttals in press, if not already published, including
Pat Hutchings et al. representing the Nomenclatural Sub-Committee of the
International Polychaetology Association.
