Type locality Philippine Islands, Pandanon Island (between Cebu and Bohol) (geocoordinates not provided, estimated with gazetteer to be approximately lat. 10.182º, long. 124.093º), between 20-35 fathoms (= 36.6-64 m). The type locality is referred to be "[Pandalon]" (Grube, 1878: v) and also "Von den Philippinen (Bohol)" (Grube, 1878: 191). Pandalon is a small island located between Cebu and Bohol, being closer to the latter, and this could be the reason why the type locality in page 191 was simplified to Bohol.  [details]
Depth range Intertidal to 2 m depth; 36.6-64 m (Philippines).

Etymology The specific epithet lumbricoides is composed by the Latin noun lumbricus, meaning 'roundworm', 'earthworm', or more generally just 'worm', followed by the Latin suffix of Greek origin -oides, expressing 'likeness', 'appearance' or 'resemblance', and refers to the resemblance of the species with an earthworm or a roundworm: "Lumbrici vel Ascaris speciem praebens" (Grube, 1878: 190), and also "Dasybranchus lumbricoides ähnelt wegen seiner straffen Leibeswand, die nirgend Auftreibungen oder schlaffe Einsenkungen zeigt, sondern ganz glatt und etwas glänzend ist, mehr einem Regenwurm oder auch Spulwurm als den andern Arten dieser Gattung" (Grube, 1878: 191).  [details]

Taxonomy The species was synonymised with Dasybranchus caducus (Grube, 1846) by Eisig (1887: 823-828), and this synonymy was accepted by Fauvel (1927: 148-149), among other authors. The status of the species was later changed by Monro (1933: 1059-1060), considering it as a variety of D. caducus, as both taxa were easily separable with base on morphological characters. Recent authors have considered the taxon as being a full valid species (e.g. López et al., 2005).  [details]
