Taxonomic notes
Couto et al. (2014: 14) comment: "It is worthmentioning, however, that specimens of the Azores morphologically identical to C. elongata as described in Walker et al. (2009) were found to be genetically identical to C. caespitosa (DQ191343, Hind & Saunders 2013), a result that indicates that the morphological differentiation of the two species is still uncertain." - (15 Jul 2015) - M.D. Guiry
