[Annelida] Polycirrus triglandula Langerhans, 1880

Hi again,

"Original names of taxa never change and can be found in WoRMS ..."

However, just to note there are a few differences between the list and the actual published names.

The 'viridis' and 'brunnea' syllids were published in new genus Opisthosyllis Langerhans.  There is no genus 'Protosyllis' as in the register.

The 'ovigera' syllid was published as a Sphaerosyllis, not Grubea.

The published spelling of the 'arminis' syllid is Grubea arminii.

'Apisthodonta' should be 'Opisthodonta'.

Typosyllis oblonga (a combination pub by Langerhans 1881 in the 'canarische anneliden') is definitely just a usage of Syllis oblonga Keferstein, 1862.

Amphitrite orotave was published as 'Orotavae'

Also Branchiomaldane 'vincentii' is the correct original spelling but prevailing usage may be as vincenti - blame Ashworth.

Finally, it looks like I received a photocopy of the Wien register Langerhans pages by post from Phyllis.  If I can find it I'll make a pdf.

Dear Harry,

Yes indeed. Oddly that is a spelling error made in the old Chaetozone newsletter, never remarked upon until now, and again oddly it was Phyllis who made it, not the more likely candidate of myself.

Also be aware I cannot be sure the list presented is totally complete, for reasons I will not go into.

Original names of taxa never change, and can be found in WoRMS, along with the modern assignments.

Dear all,

The correct names for the museum where Langerhans deposited (part of?) his material are in the German language: Naturhistorisches Museum Wien;  alternatively in English: Natural History Museum Vienna.

Be aware that many of the names have changed in the meantime.

Hello all,

Well I found the list of Langerhans Madeira etc preparations in an old, very old, email from Mary Petersen (02 Nov 1994).  As I understand the circumstances this is a transcription by Mary of a photocopy of the Naturisches Museum Wien register pages for ~1884, obtained by Phyllis Knight-Jones.  It is said by Phyllis to be in Langerhans handwriting. The explanation detail is Mary's. Polycirrus triglandula is recorded there. Langerhans died young, in 1888, in Madeira.


>From left to right, the following headings are used:

[Catalogue] No. - Probably = Langerhans' catalogue number Stuckzahl und Art der Conservering - Number of specimens and type of
   preservation; mikrosk. Praep. [here written mP] = slide; "n" probably =
   no slides
Jahr der Aufstellung - Year received?  This column has 1884, a roman numeral
   that goes at least up to XIV, thus not a month (perhaps something like an
   accession number), and a small arabic numeral, more or less in same
   sequence as catalogue numbers, but the system is not clear to me.  The
   arabic numbers are sometimes reversed relative to the catalogue numbers;
   it seems like Langerhans attempted to list the specimens first and slides
   from these afterwards, which may be why the arabic numbers do not always
   follow the same sequence as catalogue numbers.
Name - Genus species Author
Fundort - Locality; Puerto = Puerto de la Orotava, on the N coast of
   Tenerife, Canary Islands
Erhalten von (gesammelt von) - Received from (collected by) K/G/T - only a guess, but perhaps refers to storage (G, T - Glass or Tube) or
   exhibition container.  G usually given for first entry on each page,
   probably applies to all unless indicated otherwise, but only included
   below when this is on same line as species treated.
Special-Katalog Fol. - usually blank
Abgang Fol. - seems to be date (and number of) specimens [St.] given away

Hello Jérôme

I don't know, but the types and slides of Langerhans that survived are supposedly mostly at  Naturisches Museum Wien.
In 1994 Phyllis Knight-Jones reported they were there. There is a list of the species found somewhere but I am not sure if I ever saw it. Someone else may have it. Also some slides of Langerhans were found at Zoological Institute of the University of Freiburg, Germany, but these were Syllidae only.
