Medaeops granulosus ( Haswell, 1882)

( Fig. 4G View Fig )

Medaeops granulosus – Serène & Umali, 1972: 65, Pl. 7: Figs. 1 View Fig , 2 View Fig ; Serène & Vadon, 1981: 122.

Material examined. – 1 male, 12.0 × 8.5 mm, 2 females, 12.5 × 9.0 mm, 13.0 × 9.5 mm (NMCR-9705), among dead coral, 2 m, Manigo-nigo Is., Carles , Iloilo, coll. V. G. Bautista, May 1989 .

Remarks. – This species is apparently restricted to the western Pacific and eastern Indian oceans, particularly Australia (type locality), the eastern coast of China, and Japan ( Guinot,1967a). It has also been recorded from Korea, Singapore and Taiwan, ( Buitendijk, 1950; Kim & Kim, 1982; Ng et al., 2001). In the Philippines, it has been previously recorded from Quezon, Palawan Island (Serène & Umali, 1972) and Lubang Island, off the southwestern coast of Luzon (Serène & Vadon, 1981). Records of Medaeops granulosus elsewhere, e.g. the Persian Gulf, the Red Sea, Mauritius, India and South Africa (cf. Stephensen, 1945; Barnard, 1950; Michel, 1964) should be considered as those for a similar species, Medaeops neglectus ( Balss, 1922) (see Guinot, 1967a; Serène, 1984).
