"It appears that 'Priapulida' is an older spelling than 'Priapula.' There is apparently disagreement on which spelling is 'correct' in the literature, and this is an unregulated rank in this regard" - David Nicolson - ITIS Data Development Coordinator
"Brusca & Brusca (2002) note that 'classes and orders are usually not recognized within the Priapula.'" - David Nicolson - ITIS Data Development Coordinator
