Material examined. 14 specimens.

Sonora: UANL 7893, 3 spec. ( Marina  San Carlos, 27°56’54.5”N, 111°03’17.3”W, July 2, 2011, coll. JAL & ALE).GoogleMaps 

Baja California Sur: UMAR-Poly 789, 2 spec. (Margarita Island, Magdalena Bay, February 23, 1989); UMAR- Poly 790-OH (Caleritas Beach, La Paz Bay, March 1, 2006, coll. DHP et al.). 

Guerrero: UMAR-Poly 791, 2 spec. (Caleta de Chón, 6 m, on Pocillopora damicornis  , December 2, 2010, coll. SGG). 

Oaxaca : UMAR-Poly 792 (off Centro Mexicano de la Tortuga Aquarium, Mazunte , 2 m, on rock, June 11, 2013, coll. TPP & CVO); UMAR-Poly 793 ( San Agustinillo , on mollusk shell, May 11, 2013, coll. AGM et al.); UMAR- Poly 794 (Camarón Beach, on coral, April 27, 2013, coll. RXP & VHAR); UMAR-Poly 795 (Puerto Ángel, on rocks, May 3, 2010, coll. HSB & APO); UMAR-Poly 796 (San Agustín Beach, 5.8 m, on Pocillopora damicornis  , February 23, 2010, coll. RGF & SGG); UMAR-Poly 797 (Montosa Island, 6 m, on Pocillopora damicornis  , February 22, 2010, coll. RGF & SGG). 

Habitat. Intertidal to subtidal (64 m, Treadwell 1937). Generally below rocks, on live and dead coral ( Pocillopora verrucosa  [Ellis & Solander] and P. damicornis  ), oysters and pier piles (Bastida-Zavala 2008). Occasionally part of fouling fauna.

Distribution. Tropical Eastern Pacific, from Gulf of California to Colombia (Bastida-Zavala 2008).

Remarks. Mörch (1863) named the species as Pomatostegus krØyeri  ; however, Article 32.5.2.1 explicitly states that a diacritic letter (as “ø”) should be corrected to an “ o ” without slash ( ICZN 1999).

Most records of Pomatostegus  from the Tropical Eastern Pacific were as P. stellatus  , a species described from the Caribbean and generally considered to be a circumtropical species; however, ten Hove & Kupriyanova (2009: 78) suggest on the basis of unpublished data that the Tropical Eastern Pacific P. kroyeri  is different from P. stellatus  , the latter limited to the American Atlantic (e.g., Bastida-Zavala & Salazar-Vallejo 2000a; a third species, Pomatostegus actinoceras Mörch, 1863  , is distributed in the Indian Ocean and Western Pacific (e.g., Kupriyanova et al. 2015).

Mörch (1863: 399) erected Pomatostegus kroyeri  for Serpula stellata  (not Abildgaard) — Grube, 1859 (p. 113- 114), from Puntarenas (Pacific of Costa Rica). Only since the third decade of the last century was the taxon regularly reported (as P. stellatus  ) from several localities from Panamá, including the Canal Zone ( Monro 1928; 1933b), and from the Mexican Pacific. Except for Panamá ( Monro 1933b) and Colombia ( Laverde-Castillo 1988) it is not very common. Records from ship hulls or other artificial structures are rare, the Panamá docks ( Monro 1933b), two marina  piers from Loreto, Baja California Sur (Bastida-Zavala 2008) and San Carlos, Sonora (this work). This might support the hypothesis that the Pacific population is different from that in the Caribbean (ten Hove & Kupriyanova 2009); however a morphological (and DNA) comparison of specimens from both sides of the isthmus is needed to clarify the status of P. kroyeri  .
