Nereidae vs. Nereididae

It has been brought to my knowledge that a few months ago (February/March 
?) someone asked for information concerning the family names Nereidae 
versus Nereididae on Annelida net.
The name Nereididae showed up in Dr. Marian Pettibones article from 1971: 
"Revision of some species referred to Leptonereis, Nicon, and Laonereis 
(Polychaeta: Nereididae)". I have not seen Nereididae used before it 
showed up in her article.
I am very interested in the "problem" so if those who sent that previous 
request could get in contact with me, or anyone else could give me some 
information, I would be very grateful.
Thanks.

Sincerely Torkild Bakken
