Taxonomy Verde et al (2013) appear to have examined only the original 4 specimens from Simonstown, South Africa. There are no new records, and apparently no other records other than the type series from Simonstown, although the authors make no comment on this, or on the geographic distribution. They explain why they were examining this species with this general comment: "there are still many syllid species originally described from a limited number of specimens collected decades ago, with incomplete diagnoses and iconography. Additionally, some of them have been incorrectly classified and assigned to an inappropriate taxonomic level mainly due to past technological constrains." [details]
