Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet ehlersiaeformis is composed by the name of the former syllid genus and subgenus Ehlersia Quatrefages, 1866, followed by the suffix -oides, used to express 'likeness' or 'resemblance', and refers to the similarity of some of the chaetae of the new species with the chaetae typical of Ehlersia[details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat At the surface of the water column, and in sand and rocks with corals, at shallow depths. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Shark Bay, Western Australia, Australia. The species was described by Augener (1913) with base on two specimens collected in two different stations during the Hamburger SW-Australien Expedition 1905, in Western Australia (Australia): sta. 6, Shark Bay, in front of Denham (geocoordinates estimate -25.95, 113.47), surface, pelagic; sta. 25, Shark Bay, Surf Point, Outer Bar, entrance of South Passage (geocoordinates estimate -26.131, 113.166), 0.5-3.5 m, sand and rocks with corals. Augener (1913) did not designate a type locality. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType material The online catalogue of the Zoologisches Museum Berlin refers a specimen (ZMB 5311) collected during the Hamburger SW-Australien Expedition 1905, in Western Australia (Australia), in station 10, at Shark Bay. However, Augener (1913) does not refer any specimen of Pionosyllis ehlersiaeformis collected in this station. Besides, the specimen is considered to be lost. San Martín & Hutchings (2006) revised a syntype of the species deposited in the Zoologisches Museum Hamburg (ZMH P-8786). The only information given about the locality where it was collected is ''Sharks Bay, Western Australia''. No information concerning this specimen is available at the moment in the online catalogue of the ZMH. [details]
