Remarks. The neotype of this species was selected by Kropp (1986) for an ovigerous female specimen collected from Tahiti. The taxonomy of P. tomentosus   and its close relative, P. pubescens   , is fully discussed by Kropp (1986).

Distribution. Indian Ocean: from Somalia and Madagascar to Western Australia; Pacific: from Taiwan and Palau to Tuamotu Archipelago; low intertidal to 11 m; under rocks, on dead corals or on the bases of living corals ( Haig 1983, as P. penicillatus   ; Kropp 1986).
