From editor or global species database
New combination "The thorough emended description of D. simplex sensu Decreamer & Gourbault (1986) was based on material collected near Guadeloupe, Martinique, and its satellite islands. This Carribean material differs from the Mediterranean D. simplex in number of CAT, number and position of copulatory thorns, number and composition of PAT, the lack of any disc-like structure on sublateral PAT tip, strongly reduced cloacal flaps and ventral spicules alae development. Based on these differences and the wide geographical separation, we consider the Caribbean D. simplex as a new species and rename it herein as Dracognomus americanum n. sp." in: Karssen, G.; Van Aelst, A.
