Taxonomy A very confused taxon. Schmarda's material from the Cape of Good Hope (and other records from this area) most probably should be attributed to Pomatoleios kraussii, that from New Zealand (and more records from this area) to Spirobranchus cariniferus. However, material under this name from temperate American Atlantic is Pomatoceros americanus. Hartman (1956) used the name for a redescription of Pomatoceros davaoensis, a synonym of Spirobranchus corniculatus. Finally Day (1975: 204) used it for what probably would be recognized now as P. taeniatus. All records should be reviewed. [details]
