Pherecardia striata ( Kinberg, 1857 )


Pherecardia striata ( Kinberg, 1857) 

Type locality. Eimeo, Society Islands.

Records. Outer Barrier: Yonge Reef, outer slope (14 ° 36 ′S 145 ° 38 ′E) several records.

Comments. While the generic classification is probably correct the species needs to be compared with material from the type locality as this another example of a supposedly widespread “cosmopolitan species”.
