Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Vosmaer (1935) lumped large numbers of unrelated species under the name Microciona prolifera. This is untenable and best ignored. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy For a comprehensive synonymy and further references concerning this species see Hooper, 1996a: 175-176. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Originally described from New Jersey, NW Atlantic, and subsequently reported from the whole Eastern Seaboard of the USA and south to Florida, Mexico and Brazil. The tropical records of this species need to be re-examined and are expected to belong to a different species. [details]
