Remarks. this well-known species is common in artificial structures and bivalve culture gear in the Coquimbo area, where it also occurs occasionally on natural substrates. Diplosoma listerianum   is a widely distributed taxon, described in the NE Atlantic but nowadays present in all warm-temperate seas (Locke 2009). It has recently been shown to comprise five main mitochondrial clades, likely cryptic species (Pérez-Portela et al. 2013). The specimens from Coquimbo belong to Clade A of that work, the most invasive one. It was first reported in the SE Pacific by Pérez-Portela et al. (2013) in the Coquimbo and Antofagasta areas, and it was later reported also from the Patagonian Fjords zone (Schories et al. 2015).
