Type locality Islands of Krusadai and Pamban, India, Gulf of Mannar, Indian Ocean (gazetteer estimate 9.26º, 79.21º). Fauvel (1929: 181) also refers a specimen from Suez Canal, but it is not clear if this specimen should be considered as a syntype. [details]
Type material The specimens studied by Fauvel (1929) from the Gulf of Mannar and the Suez Canal were not found by Qiu & Qian (2000: 1124) in the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris (MNHN), and are not referred in the catalogue by Solís-Weiss et al. (2004) of type specimens deposited at the MNHN. The specimen from the Suez Canal may be in the Natural History Museum, London, UK (NHMUK), where the material collected during the ''Cambridge Expedition to Suez Canal 1924'' is deposited, while the material from the Gulf of Mannar, if still extant, could be deposited in the former ''Government Museum of Madras'', India. [details]
Depth range Not stated in the original description, probably from shallow water. Other records mainly from intertidal depths.

Etymology Not stated. The specific epithet decipiens is the present participle of the Latin verb decipio, meaning 'cheating' or 'misleading', and refers presumably to the shape of the neuropodial heterogomph falcigers of the middle region of the body, which led the author of the species to first consider them to be anomalous or broken, misidentifying the species: ''J'avais déjà rencontré cette espèce parmi des Annélides provenant du Canal de Suez (1927, p. 426, fig. 106) et la forme des serpes ventrales m'avait bien frappé, mais, comme la plupart étaient tombées ou brisées sur ce spécimen, je crus alors à une simple anomalie car les serpes en partie brisées du L. Jousseaumei Gravier, offrent parfois un aspect un peu analogue. Mais sur les spécimens du Golfe de Manaar les serpes sont assez nombreuses et assez bien conservées pour qu'on ne puisse s'y tromper. Leur forme est vraiment caractéristique avec ce rostre brusquement tronqué et élargi et les longues épines de leur bord convexe.'' (Fauvel, 1929: 181-182). [details]

Distribution Also distributed in Gulf Of Mannar and Suez Canal (Fuevel,1953); tropical Indo-Pacific in Kalk (1958).
