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 carinifer. See further note under Pomatoceros caeruleus (Schmarda, 1861) , a species inquirendam. [details]
