However, I'm told that the 'only' above is not correct because others can submit comments. 

Quote: "There is a procedure for "third-party annotation" whereby corrections etc. may be submitted by people other than the original authors. I believe that any such contribution must be based on already-published material."

And the GenBank help has: "If you have comments or updates to a record that does not belong to you, please email info from ncbi.nlm.nih.gov, the general NCBI Service Desk and be sure to provide the accession number of the record on which you are commenting."

So that's the process to try if the submitter seems to be unresponsive.  Posting of aquatic invert examples where third parties have help resolve a problem with a GenBank entry would be welcome.
