I'm trying to solve the confusion with the synonymy of the species
Aricidea assimilis Tebble, 1959 and Aricidea fauveli Hartman, 1957.
I taught that A. assimilis is a valid species, whose synonym (now
unaccepted) is A. mutabilis Laubier & Ramos, 1974.
In WoRMS and ERMS (MarBEF) I came to the information that A. assimilis
is unaccepted and that it is the synonym of the species Aricidea
In WoRMS there is also the information that Aricidea mutabilis Laubier &
Ramos, 1974 is accepted species.
So if I understood well, A. fauveli is accepted taxa. It's synonym is A.
assimilis. But what's with A. mutabilis then? Is it a synonym of A.
fauveli as well or is it a valid species?
Thanks for your help,
