In the Taxonomic atlas of the Benthic Fauna of the Santa Maria Basin and 
Western Santa Barbara Channel, Dr. James Blake noted in his description of 
Orbiniidae that many species and even genera within the subfamily 
Protoariciinae may not be valid.  I am especially interested in the 
status/validity of Pararicia, a genus Dr. Blake suggested to be based on a 
holotype that was really a juvenile of some Naineris species. Has this issue 
been resolved?
