brevidorsalis, Synaphobranchus Günther [A.] 1887:255, Pl. 63 (fig. C) [Report on the Scientific Results of the Voyage of H. M. S. Challenger v. 22 (pt 57); ref. 2013] North of New Guinea, Challenger station 218, depth 1070 fathoms; off Japan, Challenger station 232, depth 345 fathoms. Syntypes: (2) BMNH 1887.12.7.256 (?2). This name appeared in Günther 1877:445 [ref. 2009] under Synaphobranchus affinis as "Allied to S. brevidorsalis, ..." (but perhaps S. bathybius was intended; no distinguishing features so not available from 1877). •Valid as Synaphobranchus brevidorsalis Günther 1887 -- (Ida in Okamura et al. 1982:65, 320 [ref. 8256], Sakamoto in Amaoka et al. 1983:67, 174, 231, 315 [ref. 8379], Uyeno & Sasaki in Uyeno et al. 1983:106 [ref. 14275], Asano in Masuda et al. 1984:26 [ref. 6441], Machida in Okamura & Kitajima 1984:85, 317 [ref. 8057], Okamura & Machida 1987:108 [ref. 22279], Paxton et al. 1989:108 [ref. 12442], Golovan et al. 1989:77 [ref. 14113], Robins & Robins 1989:227 [ref. 13287], Quéro & Saldanha 1995:73 [ref. 22017], Shinohara et al. 1996:157 [ref. 26605], Sulak & Shcherbachev 1997:1171 [ref. 22986], Adam et al. 1998:7 [ref. 23610], McEachran & Fechhelm 1998:249 [ref. 23897], Fricke 1999:61 [ref. 24106], Smith 1999:1661 [ref. 24661], Nakabo 2000:214 [ref. 25086], Hutchins 2001:17 [ref. 25847], Shinohara et al. 2001:293 [ref. 25995], Nakabo 2002:214 [ref. 26001], Smith 2003:723 [ref. 26989], Karmovskaya 2003:438 [ref. 27168], Menezes in Menezes et al. 2003:34 [ref. 27192], Mundy 2005:130 [ref. 28379], Paxton et al. 2006:263 [ref. 28995], Melo 2007:315 [ref. 29141], Smith 2008:165 [ref. 30621], Shao et al. 2008:238 [ref. 29952], Fricke et al. 2009:18 [ref. 30213], Melo et al. 2009:14 [ref. 30460], Almeida et al. 2010:66 [ref. 31350], Zhang et al. 2010:315 [ref. 31511], Fricke et al. 2011:351 [ref. 31242], Ho et al. 2015:180 [ref. 34130], Smith & Stewart 2015:248 [ref. 34234], Fricke et al. 2018:42 [ref. 35805], Ho et al. 2018:76 [ref. 36038], Williams et al. 2018:99 [ref. 36359]).
