Identification The varieties of Isodictya simulans described by Carter (1887), all from the Mergui Archipelago were not clearly described and are in fact unrecognizable. The number 71 mentioned by Carter (p. 69) as belonging to his variety incrustans was later on named as Haliclona carteri by Burton, 1959: 220, again with a tantalizingly short description. Moreover, Burton's material (BMNH 1936.3.4.236a) does not appear to belong to the same species as Carter's nr. 71 (BMNH 1887.6.1.1). [details]
