From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDepth range Intertidal.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Indian Ocean, South Africa, Natal Province, near Durban.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet nigropharyngea makes reference to the characteristic pharynx with a ring of black pigment towards its posterior end.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Shore.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature In the original description the name of the species also appears incorrectly spelled as Syllis nigrophryngea.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Western Indian Ocean, South Africa, Natal, near Durban, Tongaat Beach (approx. lat. -29.987211, long. 30.963764º) and/or Reunion Rocks (approx. lat. -29.616028º, long. 31.155738º).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType material Day (1951) refers the collection of 2 specimens of Syllis nigropharyngea from Tongaat Beach, and one from Reunion Rocks, both places in the Indian coast of South Africa, near Durban. A type was not clearly designated, but at the collections of the NHM, London, there is a specimen designated as syntype (NHM 1961.16.19), without stating whether it was collected at Tongaat or Reunion Rocks. Later Day (1967) refers the S. nigropharyngea as being based on a single specimen, which could imply that the specimen deposited at the NHM is the only extant type.  [details]
