P. Laboute, MNHN Pg5907 and photograph of a specimen from Eiao, coll. J. Poupin 06/09/97, snorkeling, 1m). - Remark - Asakura (2006) has tentatively attributed to Dardanus cf. longior a single specimen collected by P. Laboute at Anao Bay (MNHN Pg5907) and has figured a color photograph of a second specimen collected by J. Poupin at Eiao, snorkeling 1 m (erroneously indicated as MNHN Pg5907 in the caption). This second specimen has not been retrieved in MHNN collection and has not been examined. Rahayu (personal communication) has also examined the specimen MNHN Pg5907 from Anao Bay, plus a set of additional specimens collected during the Marquesas MUSORSTOM 9 campaign. Based on her observation on this additional material all these specimens belong to D. sanguinocarpus. - Moorea Biocode project (with a '?'). - AAMP, Marquesas, 2012, Leg 2, St. 3-6, 13, 16; Leg 3, St. MQ16-M, Fatu Hiva, intertidal, coll.
