Status Glasby and Hutchings (2014) suggest that P. caliendrum is a species inquirenda because no type material exists and the original description is very brief. Claparède (1870) figured the animal in dorsal view and a neuropodium, showing uncini. In general, diagnostic characters are not described; however, the uncini illustrated are clearly of Type 1 sensu Glasby & Glasby (1986). This is the same type as P. aurantiacus Grube, and as both species are reported to exhibit bluish or violet phosphoresence (Saint Joseph 1894), it is quite possible the two names apply to the same species, especially considering the proximity of their type localities on either side of Italy, viz. Gulf of Naples (P. caliendrum) and Croatia (P. aurantiacus).
