Regional Records: Squilla nepa - Heller, 1865: 124 (Tahiti). - Seurat, 1934: 61 (Heller's reference). - Oratosquilla nepa - Müller, 1994: 167 (Syn.). - Miyakea nepa - Manning, 1995: 25, 213, 216, pl. 37, fig. 130a,b, 131d,e, 132-134 (List & key; new combination). - Poupin, 1998: 37 (Checklist). - Ahyong, 2002: 369 (Checklist). - Remark: Manning (Personnal communication) has examined the material from Tahiti in the Vienna Museum. It is labeled as taken by the 'Novara' and is correctly identified. - Ahyong et al., 2008: 141 ("Apart from Heller's (1865) record from Tahiti, M. Nepa has been recorded only as far east as New Caledonia (Moosa, 1991). The specimens on which Heller's record is based are correctly identified, however, so locality data for Heller's specimens are probably erroneous").
