Latest version published by University of Rhode Island - Biological Sciences on Mar 26, 2019 University of Rhode Island - Biological Sciences

Six valid species of boreo-arctic Atlantic Geodia were identified in Cárdenas et al. (2013). The authors compiled presence records for each species (with older records being interpretted in light of their findings), and these data are reproduced here.
