Title: Didemnum Tetrahedrum Sp. Nov., A New Didemnum (tunicata: Ascidiacea) Species From South-eastern Brazil
Author: Dias G.M.
Rodrigues S.D.A.
Abstract: A new species of Didemnum was discovered during a recent biodiversity survey of Praia da Baleia, São Sebastião, São 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.
