Distribution Lundbeck (1909) reported this species from Greenland. This is considered a misapplication, as the geographic distance and the habitat make conspecificity unlikely. Lundbeck's record is preliminarily reassigned to Haliclona varia sensu Lundbeck, 1909 awaiting reassignment to the synonymy of an existing species or possibly a renamed separate new species. [details]

Distribution Lundbeck (1909) reported this species from Greenland. This is considered a misapplication, as the geographic distance and the habitat make conspecificity unlikely. Lundbeck's record is preliminarily reassigned to Haliclona varia sensu Lundbeck, 1909 awaiting reassignment to the synonymy of an existing species or possibly a renamed separate new species. [details]
