From editor or global species database
Identification Topsent's (1892, 1904) use of the combination Petrosia variabilis is based on his misapplied concept of the North Australian Schmidtia variabilis Ridley, 1884. It is unlikely that the deep-sea species of Petrosia found near the Azores belongs to the same species. Until the erection of a new name for the Azores species we employ the name variabilis sensu Topsent, 1892 to it. [details]
