The present results from the rubble method strongly resemble results from the Mexican Pacific (Carballo et al., 2008a), where the small Siphonodictyon crypticum, Clione vermifera, and Pione carpenteri were among the most com mon species, with the latter two being more closely taxonomically related to the four "rubble-species" from Orpheus Island than to "the usual suspects" in attached materials, such as C.
