Type information
Holotype locality: Mokulë’ia, Oahu, Hawaiian Islands (Huisman, Sherwood & Abbott 2003: 981). Holotype: Maya LeGrande; 5 May 2002; on Liagora valida Harvey from shallow reef flat. IA 28754 (Huisman, Sherwood & Abbott 2003: 981). Notes: The sheet has four specimens of L. valida, each bearing numerous specimens of P. liagoraciphila.
