Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Philippines (Mindanao Island: Zamboanga), and Indonesia (Pulau Edam, near Java, and Ambon Island).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet lycochaetus is formed by the prefix of Greek origin 'lyco', meaning 'wolf', and the Latin word chaetus, meaning 'haired'. It is not clear to what it refers, maybe to the simple chaetae shaped like wolf canines? [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Coral rubble and sand, at shore or shallow water.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomic remark The description and figures of Syllis lycochaetus provided by Grube (1878) and Ehlers (1920) seem to indicate a species belonging to the genus Alcyonosyllis Glasby & Watson, 2001. It could be an older synonym of one of the species of this genus described from the Indo-Pacific region. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Licher (1999) considered Syllis lycochaetus as being a nomen dubium.  [details]
