Taxonomy Carter (1880) recorded this species as Reniera fibulifera Sdt and added that this sponge '..seems to be world-wide in its distribution,...'. There is no Reniera fibulifera authored by Schmidt. Possibly, Carter made a mistake and meant Reniera fibulata Schmidt, 1862. Thus, the combination Reniera fibulifera must be assigned to Carter, 1880.
The description refers to a 'small growth, about 1-16th of an inch' which was not kept as specimen or slide.
The combination Haliclona fibulifera is inspired by the fact that most Reniera species are now assignable to Haliclona s.l., but there is no objective evidence that Carter's material is in fact also Haliclona. The species is incertae sedis. [details]
