Distribution Breitfuss provided only a very general locality ('Nordliches Eismeer'). In 1932, he translated that to 'Barentsmeer', and added some additional localities of the 'Helgoland' Expedition from around Spitsbergen. [details]

Identification Breitfuss (1898, 1932) referred to Montagu's (1814) description of Spongia foliacea as the basis for his species.

Remarkably, Burton (1963: 444) assumed that Breitfuss was the author of the combination Grantia foliacea apparently overlooking that Breitfuss considered his specimens as conspecific with Montagu's. A further cmplication is that Montagu's Spongia foliacea is a junior homonym of Spongia foliacea Esper, 1797, q.v. [details]
