Pennella pustulosa Baird, 1850 

Not valid. Described from a specimen collected from Corpyphaena sp., Australia ( Baird, 1850). The single specimen was without a cephalothorax or holdfasts (i.e. only the external portion of the parasite was documented). Inadequate description and insufficient information; synonym of P. filosa ( Leigh-Sharpe 1928)  ; accepted as P. filosa ( Walter & Boxshall 2015)  .
