Abstract


There has been confusion regarding the specimens identified as "Dendrilla membranosa (Pallas, 1766)" in Antarctic and subantarctic waters, considering that the original description corresponded to specimens from the Indian Ocean. In this study, we clarified the identification of the specimens collected in Argentinian waters, SW Atlantic Ocean, that should be identified as Dendrilla antarctica Topsent, 1905, updating its distributional range and considering the new records reported in the present study.
