The remainder are widely distributed Indo-Pacific taxa: Spondylus cuneus Reeve, 1856, Spondylus sinensis Schreibers, 1793, Spondylus Occidens Sowerby, 1903, Spondylus sanguineus Dunker, 1852, Spondylus castus Reeve, 1856, Spondylus butleri Reeve, 1856, Spondylus flabellum Reeve, 1856, and Spondylus tenuispinosus Sowerby, 1847.
