Tetrarhynchus ceylonicus Southwell, 1929, Tentacularia macfiei Southwell, 1929); Poecilancistrium caryophyllum (Diesing, 1850) (syn. Tetrarhynchus gangeticus Shipley & Hornell, 1906); Mecistobothrium johnstonei (Southwell, 1929) n. comb. (syn. Tentacularia johnstonei Southwell, 1929); Trygonicola macroporus (Shipley & Hornell, 1906) n. comb., n. g. (syn. Tetrarhynchus macroporus Shipley & Hornell, 1906); Grillotia matheri (Southwell, 1929) n. comb. (syn. Tetrarhynchus matheri Southwell, 1929); Dasyrhynchus pillersi (Southwell, 1929) (syn. Tentacularia pillersi Southwell, 1929); Grillotia shipleyi (Southwell, 1929) n. comb. (syn. Tetrarhynchus shipleyi Southwell, 1929, Tetrarhynchus sp. (? matheri) of Southwell, 1929 and Grillotia overstreeti Sakanari, 1989); and Bombycirhynchus sphyraenaicum Pintner, 1931 (syn.
