Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment S. giganteus corniculatus as mentioned by Imajima (1976) nowadays would be recognized as Spirobranchus paumotanus (Chamberlin, 1919) ; as mentioned by Bailey-Brock (1985) to Spirobranchus richardsmithi Pillai, 2009 in addition to taxonomic remarks, below. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy  In 1970, ten Hove split up the "circumtropical" Spirobranchus giganteus of authors in three what he at that time thought to be subspecies, in the meantime all recognized as species-complexes by themselves, totalling some 10 different species, see Fiege & ten Hove (1999 fig.4) for a graphic overview. What ten Hove thought to be the "subspecies" S. giganteus corniculatus nowadays is recognized as complex of about 7 species. The name giving S. corniculatus is one of those 7, but all records under the trinomen should be re-identified. [details]
