All the specimens preserved in the University Museum, the University of Tokyo, are recorded. The collection data written on the labels are reproduced as rightly as possible, although in many of the old specimens collected more than 100 years ago, the local names of the collection sites should have been altered following the administrative reform. Most of the specimens are preserved in spirit and useful for further morphological studies. It is remarkable that the holotype of Lyreidus integra Terazaki, 1904, which is considered to be syonymous with L. stenopus Wood-Mason,1887, was found among the specimens examined. The short note on the type status is referred to the remarks on L. stenopus.
