Comment(s) on data
In Felder et al. (2009, note 395) - in the same account, it is at one point (p. 254) reported that P. octodentata Rathbun, 1906, occurs in the GMx but later (p. 263) argued to the contrary; it is our interpretation that no records of P. octodentata can be presently confirmed within the GMx, even though its range is not in fact restricted to the Lesser Antilles; Soto (1986) accurately summarizes records of the latter species from Cuba and the Florida Straits, immediately to the east of our defined GMx limits
