Hi again!

Well, certainly agree with Jim on type genera not having to be the oldest
ones, but still don't get it why Pherusea of Grube, 1850 is not ok. And I
do think the name Chloreama and Chloreamidae (whatever spelling) is a out
of the way. But I i still don't get it why Grube's Pherusea isn't a valid
family group name, in the same way as we refer e.g., Nephtyidae,
Glyceridae, Syllidea to him (admittedly I don't have Grube 1850 in front of
me, but these names should appear there according to Fauchald & Rouse
