Remarks. Cymadusa panwa Peart, 2002   , is synonymised with C. vadosa Imbach, 1967   , following reexamination of type material. The characters cited in the original remarks section for C. panwa   do not confirm with the illustrations, leading to an oversight in recognising a known species. The distribution of C. vadosa   is significantly extended with material from Lord Howe Island, Tasman Sea and Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Indian Ocean.

Distribution. South China Sea: Vietnam (Imbach 1967). Andaman Sea: Thailand (Peart 2002).Indian Ocean: Cocos (Keeling) Islands (current study). New Caledonia (Ledoyer 1984). Tasman Sea: Lord Howe Island (current study).
