*Dear Taxacomers:*

*I am working with some nudibranchia (Mollusca: Gastropoda) from northern
Chile. I wonder if anyone can help me with the authorship for the type
species of genus Phidiana Gray, 1850.*

*As far as I know, the type species is Eolidea patagonica d'Orbigny, 1836.
(= Phidiana patagonica (d'Orbigny, 1836)), by subsequent designation, but I
can not find out who made this subsequent designation.*

*Any help or hint in the correct direction will be very appreciated,*


*Juan Francisco.*
