Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDepth range Intertidal to 2 m depth; 36.6-64 m (Philippines).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Western Atlantic Ocean: from North Carolina to the Gulf of Mexico, Cuba, and Panamá. Pacific Ocean: from California to Galápagos; Pandanon Island (Philippines).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology 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]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Dead coral samples, under boulders, and coarse sand, intertidal to shallow depths.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy 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]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType 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]
