Maybe we should just follow Pleijel and Rouse's lead  and refer to it as 
Diversicolor Müller, 1776 and not worry if it's Hediste diversicolor, Nereis 
diversicolor or Nereis (Hediste) diversicolor let alone the ridiculous 
Hediste (Nereis) diversicolor.  

On another note I am not the L.A. Ward that published the recent paper 
on Streblospio larvae in the Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and 
Ecology.  It gave me a start when I saw the reference in a recent issue of 
current contents.  Won't this drive future polychaete bibliographers 
bonkers seeing two L.A. Ward's publishing things on spionids.  Since it's 
highly unlikely I will ever publish anything else on spionids it will be safe 
to assume all future papers belong to this new author.
