Jensen OS 1878 (citation)- definition in Latin- discussion p 24-25, Plate I- figures 4-8.
Levinsen GMR 1879 (citation)- note occur in Groenland.
Graff L v 1882 (citation)- describes.
Bohmig L 1895 (citation)- in list p 44.
Graff L v 1902 (citation)- says this species must go to Amphicoerus.  Says Aphanostoma virescens
	Amphicoerus virescens- comparison of this and Amphicoerus rhomboides- occur in Puerto Rico.

Graff L v 1904 (citation)- description of this  as Amphicoerus, but he also lists an
	Aphanostoma virescens.
Brinkmann A 1905 (citation)- notes occurence of.
Lohner L 1913 (citation)- considers this a species of Amphiscolops.  on bursal nozzles in.
	Places in Polychoerus.
Steinbock O 1931 (citation)- from Faroes- description and illustration.
Steinbock O 1932 (citation)- lists as Amphiscolops virescens from the Arctic p 300.
Steinbock O 1938 (citation)- reports from Iceland.
Westblad E 1946 (citation)- moves Amphiscolops virescens into same genus as Aphanostoma
	diversicolor and calls it Paraconvoluta, p 51.

Marcus E 1947 (citation)- p 161- notes action of Lohner and says finally this transferred to
	Paraconvoluta by Westblad 1946.
Westblad E 1948 (citation)- notes that in English summary p 74 notes this genus should be called
	Aphanostoma [law of priority Oersted described both in 1845 as  Aphanostoma]-
	Says this and diversicolor should be Aphanostoma - and other Aphanostoma are Mecynostomum.  
Marcus E 1948 (citation)- that Westblad (1946) should have maintained genus Aphanostoma
        for virescens and diversicolor; therefore Paraconvoluta (Westbl) becomes a synonym
        of Aphanostoma, p 112, 187.
Marcus E 1950 (citation)- mentions p 16, 103.
Steinbock O 1957 (citation)- in comparison with gastrotrichs.
Dorjes J 1968 (citation)- lists this under Aphanostoma and as type.
