While in New Zealand, Michael Miller (M.C.Miller not M.D.Miller) asked about the date of the first use of Aeolidiidae.
In Lemche's submission (1964) to the International Commission he dates a work by d'Orbigny on Canary Islands marine life as 1834 and states that this is the earliest use of the family name Aeolidiidae. However the work he quotes seems to have been published in 1839. Can anyone help with this?
