Distribution Locality records of species of Watersipora all must be reassessed in the light of the conclusions of Vieira et al (2014). Valid records of W. arcuata are from the Pacific: Galapagos, Hawai'i, western USA and Mexico, eastern and southern Australia. This species may have become locally extinct in Australia. [details]
