Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDepth range Unknown. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Singapore and Philippines (Zamboanga, Mindanao Island). [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet solida refers to the solid or compact body of the species.  [details]

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

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Questionably synonym of species listed, Branchiosyllis exilis (Gravier, 1900).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Species uncertain. Augener (1913) stated that Syllis solida was very similar to Branchiosyllis exilis (Gravier, 1900), and that the two species could be synonymous. Fauvel (1917) considered this synonymy as doubtful, and this position was followed by other authors, like Hartman (1959). Finally, in the absence of type material Licher (1999) considered the species as a nomen dubium.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Probably Singapore ("Wahrscheinlich Singapore"; Grube, 1878: VII, 121) (geocoordinates not provided, estimated with gazetteer to be approximately lat. 1.22, long. 103.74). Grube (1878: VI) also refers the presence of the species at Zamboanga (Mindanao Island, Philippines; collected in September 1859), but authors have considered the type locality as being Singapore.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType material Licher (1999) was not able to locate the type material.  [details]
