Abstract

A perusal of relevant literature shows that there are only four described species of the genus Scyphoproctus Gravier. Scyphoproctus djiboutiensis Gravier has been recorded from the Bay of Djibouti (Gravier, 1904), the Red Sea (Gravier, 1906) and the Gulf of Mannar, India (Fauvel, 1930, 1953); S.gravieri Okuda was described from a single posterior bit comprising of seven setigerous segments and a pygidium collected at Kakihana, Okinawa (Okuda, 1940); S.oculatus Reish was taken in Newport Bay on the Southern California (Reish, 1959) and S. platyproctus Jones obtained from a sandy bottom off the Florida coast at Panama City, Bay County (Jones, 1961).
