Type locality Philippine Islands, probably Bohol Island ("[Bohol?]"; Grube, 1878: v). In the same publication the type locality is also given as being "Von den Philippinen (Tatihou?)" (Grube, 1878: 134), which seems to be a lapsus calami. Tatihou is an island in the Atlantic coast of France, in Normandy. Quite probably Grube was referring to one of two locations cited in the same work, Talibon or Tuhigon (= Tubigon), both located at Bohol Island and about 50 km distant from each other. In the absence of further data and considering Grube's own question marks, the type locality is here considered as being probably Bohol Island.  [details]
Type material Apparently not deposited at the MPW or ZMB, where other type material described by Grube (1878) is deposited. Salazar-Vallejo et al. (2014) refer the type material as being at the ZMB, but no types of this species are referred in the catalogue by Hartwich (1993), of types of Polychaeta deposited at the Zoological Museum, Berlin.  [details]
