anything calling itself googlebot that doesn't pass a reverse dns test gets blocked by us.

I blocked them, but thought it was very odd that a relatively mainstream company would attempt to pull a fast one.

... actually there is no hostname associated with the ip address you gave ...
quite possibly not yellow pages either!

Yellowpages.com SAVV-S265785-1 (NET-64-209-132-0-1) 184.108.40.206 - 220.127.116.11

ok so it is yellow pages, but no hostname set up!

I have no bot recorded as having come from that range and certainly not a googlebot, which would get rejected on that IP range, or a YP bot.
There is no rDNS, as topr8 mentions, so it's due a blocking.
The parent of that IP range is Savvis, which is worth blocking anyway.

Got a visit today from 18.104.22.168 - null.ev1.yellowpages.com
YPBot/Raven1.1.3 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; http: //www.yellowpages.com/about/legal/crawl)
Took robots.txt and left, well good luck to them when it comes back ;o)
The 208. range was never in my good books

Any possible relationship to this activity [webmasterworld.com]?

This is Ypages, the other thread is Ybook
