status

 

Spirobranchus   corniculatus- complex

Spirobranchus tricornis   not (Mörch) sensu Morton and Morton 1983: 278 –279.

Remarks. Spirobranchus tricornis sensu   auct. has been reported from Hong Kong by Mak (1982: 609) and by Morton and Morton (1983: 279). From Mak’s diagnosis it is evident that he was referring to S. tetraceros   (see below). However, Morton and Morton (1983: 278–279) clearly depict a spiralised branchial crown, with colours white, yellow, orange and red, living in corals. This only can refer to a member of the Spirobranchus corniculatuscomplex   (see Fiege and ten Hove 1999, figure 4), unfortunately Morton´s notes are insufficient for a more detailed identification of the taxon involved.
