To anyone that can help,

I am trying to determine which is the correct name usage for the following 
Nereid polychaete.  

Nereis acuminata
Neanthes acuminata
Nereis arenaceodonta
Neanthes arenaceodonta

>From what I can find in the literature, they are all the same thing, but which is 
the correct name.  I checked the ITIS database, and they are all valid names 
with the exception of Nereis arenaceodonta which according to ITIS is 
Neanthes arenaceodonta.  Can anyone help with this?
