Type locality Loango, Kouilou Region, 19 kilometers north of Pointe Noire, Republic of Congo, West Africa, estimated (gazetteer) -4.6308, 11.8267, "mangrove swamps where fresh-water streams entered the ocean". The original description reads "collected at Loango, 19 kilometers north of Pointe Noire". Loango is a small settlement visible on satellite maps (see images), about 1 kilometer inland. The collection site may have been near the coast, where the coast road crosses a river bed, thus -4.6308, 11.8267. (Martin et al 2015 misspell Loango as Luango. Martin et al 2012 text also misspelled the name as Luango, although it is correct as Loango in their figure 1.) [details]

From editor or global species database
Biology Parasyllidea humesi, from the Gabon, West Africa, is a commensal, and was originally found in the mantle cavities of estuarine Tellina nymphalis Lamark (Pettibone, 1961). Martin et al. (2012) also found this species inside estuarine Scrobicularia plana on the Iberian Peninsula. Martin et al (2015:11) "strongly suggest that the host [bivalve] species infested by the Congolese population of O. humesi should be T. innominata rather than T. nymphalis". [details]
