Thomas, P A (1968) Studies on Indian Sponges IV. Additions to the genus Corticium schmidt with notes on the distribution of Corticium candelabrum Schmidt. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 10 (2). pp. 260-263.
Two species of the genus Corticium Schmidt (1862) of the Order Carnosida Carter (1875), family Halinidae de Laubenfels (1936) were collected by the author. The first one, Corticium acanthastrum is a new species and the second, C candelabrum Schmidt is reported here from Indian region. The discovery of the latter species here helps in bridging a wide gap in its distribution in two widely separated zoogeographical areas such as Mediterranean Sea and Western Pacific.
