This information is based upon various sources, but no personal knowledge. I am indebted to the late Alan Horowitz for his compilation, and to Dr. J. Pachut.
The genus Membraniporella as encompassed here includes a variety of species which need major revision. Many of these species will not be related to Membraniporella sensu stricto.
I would be grateful for corrections to, or critical reviews of this information. This is not a 'final' version (an impossible ideal), but a working document.
