Notes

Originally described from Madeira, with a circumtropical distribution. However, reports of this species show a high polymorphism of specific characters ( Radashevsky and Nogueira 2003). It has been suggested that at least two allopatric species are present under the name Dipolydora armata  ( Blake 1983). Bick (2002) distinguishes three morphological forms amongst Western Mediterranean material on the basis of notopodial spines, but Radashevsky and Nogueira (2003) attribute this variability to stages of asexual reproduction of the species.
