Status The variety was described by Ridley & Dendy from Challenger Exped. Stat. 145, at the Prince Edward Islands, Subantarctic Indian Ocean, 46.7167°S 38.075°E, depth 256 m (three syntypes BMNH 1887.11.19.2, and another 50 specimens from Kerguelen localities lacking precise coordinates). The specimens described and illustrated resemble Antarctic species Stylocordyla chupachups Uriz et al. (2011: 247), but these authors claim they could not verify if Ridley & Dendy’s variety was conspecific with S. chupachups, because Ridley & Dendy did not provide spicule size data. It would have been ideal if they would have borrowed slides or one of the syntype specimens in London to avoid a possible conspecificity. An extra reason for doing so is Hentschel’s (1914: 54) report of the var. globosa from Gauss Station in Eastern Antarctica (66.0358°S 89.6333°E) with shape, absence of a microxea palisade in the globular body, and spicule sizes similar to those of S. chupachups. Van Soest (2024: 85) proposed to elevate the present variety to species level as Stylocordyla globosa Ridley & Dendy, 1886, awaiting further comparison with type material of both S. globosa and S. chupachups[details]
