Introduced species remark This combination is based on a probable erroneous record of the ill-known Mexican-Caribbean species Dictyonella hirta (originally Amorphina hirta Topsent, 1889). The species has been erroneously reported from Argentina by Burton (1940) and from West Africa by Burton (1956). Burton was a known 'lumper', employing a broad species concept, based on the mistaken assumption that sponge larvae could travel the world's oceans (see e.g. Burton, 1930). Remarkably, the present species was assumed to be an invasive species in the South Atlantic by Orensanz et al. 2002. There is no substance for this assumption. The various specimens need to be revised. [details]
