Distribution The widespread distribution claimed for Polydora ciliata of Australia, Indo-China, india, Red Sea, South Africa, Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, Mediterranean Sea and Falkland Islands.(Fauvel,1953), is incorrect. Polydora ciliata is only known with certainty from the type locality. [details]

Identification Polydora ciliata was frequently the name used during the early years of misidentification of Polydora-group species, before it was realized that there were in reality numerous species in the group. Note that Polydora ciliata is not a shell-borer.
A recent rejection of identification as P. ciliata is in Rodewald et al (2021: 274) where they comment that: "Polydora cf. ciliata in Simon (2011) was identified according to Day (1967) who reported the species as boring into calcareous rock and 'lithothamnion' in southern Mozambique. The confusion between P. ciliata and P. websteri is not new and Blake & Kudenov (1978) even suggested that (all) early reports of P. ciliata as a shell-borer were likely of P. websteri. Furthermore, the name P. ciliata has erroneously been applied to multiple morphologically similar boring and non-boring species (Mustaquim 1988; Simon & Sato-Okoshi 2015), so the presence of P. ciliata in southern Africa is doubtful."  [details]

Synonymy The planktonic larva, Metadasydytes quadrimaculatus Roszczak, 1971, a genus and species from Vistula Lagoon, Baltic coast of Poland, and described as a gastrotrich, is clearly a spionid larva. Hummon (2008: 115) refers it to Polydora ciliata, but notes the identification to that species is not certain. [details]
