|Title:||Didemnum tetrahedrum sp nov., a new Didemnum (Tunicata : Ascidiacea) species from south-eastern Brazil|
|Abstract:||A new species of Didemnum was discovered during a recent biodiversity survey of Praia da Baleia, Sao Sebastiao, Sao Paulo State, Brazil. This species has a unique and peculiar type of spicule composed by four calcareous spheroids grouped together to form a tetrahedral structure. In other aspects, the new species is similar to certain other whitish tropical Atlantic American didemnids formerly assigned to Didemnum candidum.|
