REMARKS

The small specimen (MNHN-Na 15224) from Papua New Guinea has an aberrant telson with the left distal dorsal spine position occupied by two instead of one spine.

The species has been recorded from Ascidia empheres Sluiter, 1895   , Ascidia sydneiensis   and Rhopalaea crassa (Herdman, 1880)   . Phallusia julinea   , Ascidia divisa   , and Ascidia ornata   constitute new host records.

The species has been recorded from the Indo- West Pacific from the Red Sea and Madagascar to Indonesia, the Philippines, New Guinea, and as far east as Guam and the Bismarck Archipelago. This is the first record of the species from Tahiti.
