REMARKS

The species was hitherto only known from South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland. This is the first record of the species from the Indian Ocean. The identity of the host was established by Bruce (2002b), being the Ascidian Polycarpa flava Kott, 1985   . Polycarpa nigricans   constitutes a new host record.
