Type locality Either shore at Misaki, Sagami Bay, Japan, estimated 35.1374 N, 139.6258l E, or several hundred kilometres south offshore at Bonin (Ogasawara) Islands, estimated 26.9981 N, 142.2180 E [details] Type specimen Nomen dubium as the only museum specimen is not as described in print and cannot be the type. Based on the discrepancy between Johansson's original description and the actual nature of the museum 'holotype' (then reassigned as an Oriopsis) Fitzhugh suggested the description was based on other material now lost. Yoshihara et al (2012) inferred type or label "was likely to be replaced later by accident", and suggested the specimen held as the 'holotype' (Zoologiska Museet, Uppsala, ZUM 206) was an Amphicorina, possibly A. mobilis (Rouse, 1990). The explanation may lie in the fact that Johansson reported the species from two localities, the shore at Misaki Sagami, and also offshore at the Bonin Islands. Thus the deposited specimen 'holotype' as first examined by Imajima & Hartman (1964:366) is not the specimen Johansson described as the type, which is the 'real' F. ventrilinguata species, and could have come from Bonin Islands, but is now presumed lost.
