Taxonomy In 1970, ten Hove split up the "circumtropical" Spirobranchus 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. There is a lot of confusion in the existing identifications of circumtropical "Sp. giganteus", but the use of the latter binomen should be restricted to the specimens from the Caribbean. Ten Hove synonymised S. spinosus with S. giganteus, but in the meantime the taxon is recognized as a full species again. [details]

Synonymy Spirobranchus grandis, a lapsus calami by Brusca & Brusca for S. giganteus, should be attributed to S. incrassatus. [details]

Taxonomy In 1970, ten Hove split up the "circumtropical" Spirobranchus 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. There is a lot of confusion in the existing identifications of circumtropical "Sp. giganteus", but the use of the latter binomen should be restricted to the specimens from the Caribbean. Ten Hove synonymised S. spinosus with S. giganteus, but in the meantime the taxon is recognized as a full species again. [details]
