Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Mediterranean and European waters. Indo-Pacific records need to be rechecked. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet spongicola is formed by the Latin word for sponge, spongia, followed by the Latin suffix -cola, meaning 'inhabitant', and refers to the habitat of the species, living associated with sponges.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat In orange colored sponges.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Moved to different genus. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Northern Adriatic Sea, near Trieste, Italy (geocoordinates not provided, estimated with gazetteer to be approximately lat. 45.66, long. 13.74). According to Wiktor (1980) there are 4 possible syntypes deposited at the MPW (No. 399), collected near Hvar Island (= Lesina), Croatia. Grube (1855) does not refer this locality in his original description of the species, for which reason probably these specimens are not part of the type material.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType material Three syntypes deposited at the Museum Przyrodnicze Universitetu Wroclawskiergo (MPW, Poland), with the reference No. 399. All 3 syntypes in poor condition (Lattig et al., 2007). Wiktor (1980) points that it is not clear that these specimens are syntypes, as Grube (1855: 104) gives the type locality as being Trieste ("bei Triest").  [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Haplosyllis is a subgenus according to Fauvel (1953). [details]
