Remarks

Clench (1934:214) reports C. caerulescens from Strachan, Saltwater Pond, and Clem Cays, off Clarencetown, Long Island. He noted differences "in minute details" from the type specimen from Exuma, but little differences in individual colonies.

Clench (1935:50) lists C. caerulescens as one of 4 species previously known from Long Island. It, along with C. nudum, was reported from the vicinity of Clarencetown. 

Clench (1957:128-129) lists C. caerulescens as occurring on Great Exuma Island, but not on Long Island.   

Woodruff (1978:fig. 7) illustrates a specimen from Long Island labeled C. caerulescens.
