Loc:
W Pacif.: Caroline Islands (Ifaluk Atoll)
N: 1
Lg.:
(359) M: 0,69; {M: 0,69}
Rem.: Sandy parts of the reef (its presence in sponge washings must be considered as accidental.
According to Vervoort (1964, p.23) this species is closely allied to P. unbricatus Giesbrecht, but easily differentiated by the structure of A1 and furca.
