Taxonomic notes
We have adopted the generic placement this species in Melyvonnea by Athanasiadis & Ballantine (2014) rather than Mesophyllum by Sissini et al. (2014) pending the aquistion of DNA data to support the application of morphological and anatomical characters in this group. Sissini et al. (2014) reported that several species pass under this name world-wide but that the species "... is restricted to the tropical and warm temperate regions of the western Atlantic Ocean, including the Caribbean Sea and southern Gulf of Mexico." - (13 Oct 2016) - M.D. Guiry

General environment
This is a marine species.
