Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorStatus Bergquist (1980: 470) declared this taxon unrecognizable.
The name of the species probably should be changed to Thorecta exemplum as it is the first named variety of the original name Cacospongia exemplum. However, since the taxon is unrecognizable this issue is moot. [details]
