Type locality. Brazil .

Material examined. CNPGG-2283, Triangulo Este reef (20.90879°N, - 91.2017°W), 7.8 m depth, coll. Oscar Bocardo, 12 September 2017; CNPGG-1165, Alacranes reef (22.36705°N, - 89.67511°W), coll. Patricia Gómez, 3 August 2009.

Distribution. Mexico ( Gómez & Green 1984; Gómez 2002 as Pseudaxinella lunaecharta ; Ugalde et al. 2015; current record), Bermuda, Bahamas, US (North and South Carolina, Florida), Cuba, other countries in the Caribbean Sea and Brazil ( Ugalde et al. 2015). Remarks. Dragmacidon reticulatum is a common inhabitant of the GoM, found in the north region ( Alvarez et al. 1998 as Pseudaxinella reticulata ), southern region ( Ugalde et al. 2015), and the Mesoamerican barrier reef of Quintana Roo ( Gómez & Green 1984; Gómez 2002; Maas-Vargas 2004 as Pseudaxinella lunaecharta ). No ecophenotypic variability is found in specimens of D. reticulatum , or in spicule measurements, which are styles in a range of 229–309 × 9–16.5 µm, 290–340 × 15–20 µm or 200–300 × 6.8–7.8 µm; oxeas 297–346 × 12–15 µm, 360–410 × 15–18 µm or 283–340 × 7.8–9.8 µm; respectively in Gómez & Green (1984), Rützler et al. (2014) and Ugalde et al. (2015, Figs. 15A, B View FIGURE 15 ). For a detailed description, see Hajdu et al. (2011) and the references cited above.
