The type specimens of Boreionectes and Maclearnia (formerly Mclearnia) from the Lower Cretaceous of western Canada and England, respectively, are redescribed, refigured and interpreted as subjective synonyms at the generic level. Even though the name Boreionectes has been used widely and Maclearnia has been hitherto rarely used, the latter has priority. It is treated as a subgenus of Camptonectes.--Modified journal abstract.
