[Annelida] Arwidsson date

Dear Geoff and all,

There are two publications of the same work, one dated 1906 and the other
1907. Maybe this is the reason why this work is sometimes dated as 1906 and
others as 1907:

ARWIDSSON, I. 1906. Studien über die skandinavischen und arktischen
Maldaniden nebst Zusammenstellung der übrigen bischer bekannten Arter diese
Familie. Inaugural-Dissertation zur Erlangung der Doktorwürde mit
genehmigung der Matematisch-Naturwissenschaftlichen Sektion der
Philosophischen Fakultät zu Upsala. Lippert & Co., Naumburg, 1-308, 12
plates. 

ARWIDSSON, I. 1907. Studien über die skandinavischen und arktischen
Maldaniden nebst Zusammenstellung der übrigen bischer bekannten Arter diese
Familie. Zoologisches Jahrbücher, Jena, Supplement 15: 1-308, 12 plates. 

I'm quite positive about the date 1906, but I can check it again tonight (I
have both books at home, found them in antiquarians). 

In fact, there are several cases of the same work being published twice (as
a thesis or a monograph, and in a journal), but lucky enough they were
published in the same year the biggest part of the times. There is also the
case of reprints of a paper being published before the journal, in which
case I suppose the reprint has priority. I have found following case:

LEVINSEN, G.M.R. 1886. Kara-Havets Ledorme (Annulata). In: LÜTKEN, C.F.
Dijmphna-Togtets zoologisk-botaniske Udbytte, Bianco Luno, København, pp.
1-17, plate 25. 

This reprint was apparently available in 1886 (the reprint has a cover with
"1886" clearly printed on it), while the book where the paper was included,
and which is normally cited as the publication date, seems that was
available only in 1887: 

LEVINSEN, G.M.R. 1887. Kara-Havets Ledorme (Annulata). In: LÜTKEN, C.F.
Dijmphna-Togtets zoologisk-botaniske Udbytte, J. Hagerup, København, pp.
288-303, plate 25.

I hope this helps. 

Best wishes,
João

Dear colleagues,

Perhaps someone has concluded which year Ivar Arwidsson published his
thesis "Studien über die skandinavischen und arktischen Maldaniden ...",
1906 or 1907?

Usually when there is uncertainty whether the printed date (here 1906,
text completed in June) is correct we go for the next year. Hartman
(1951) thought 1907, as did Light (1991, also in his thesis). I am
inclined to follow the leader, but want reassuring if possible, since
several taxa entries in WoRMS would need to be changed.

You can see the title pages at
http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/item/87302 and they seem to say
the thesis defense was in Feb 1907, but is this relevant? 

Thanks,

Geoff
