Type material Spirobranchus manilensis is based on the original material of Pillai (1965) for his unavailable varietal name Pomatoleios kraussii var. manilensis Pillai, 1965. Authors Sivananthan, Shantti, Kupriyanova, Quek, Yap, & Teo examined seven specimens from Binakayan, Cavite, Manila Bay, Philippines: NHM1966.33.34/43; material from and among farmed oysters. As a holotype was not named, and Pillai's own 'lectotype' not examined, the seven specimens might be syntypes. Alternatively, and preferably, Pillai's original 'lectotype' could be taken to be the holotype by the act of Sivananthan et al, in including reference to, and adopting, Pillai's original name, although they were evidently unaware it was an unavailable name .

    Definitions

From editor or global species database
Authority The name created by Pillai (1965) in the original combination in Potamoleios is permanently unavailable as a variety name created post 1960. Therefore the authors of Spirobranchus manilensis are Sivananthan, Shantti, Kupriyanova, Quek, Yap, & Teo, 2021.
Here is one of the relevant 4th Ediition Code rules: "10.2. Availability of infrasubspecific names. An infrasubspecific name is not available [Art. 45.5] from its original publication, unless it was published before 1961 for a "variety" or "form" and is deemed to be available under Art. 45.6.4.1. If an author uses a name, previously published at infrasubspecific rank, in a way which makes it available for a species or subspecies, that author thereby establishes it as a new name and it takes his or her authorship [Art. 45.5.1] " [details]
