Others seem to feel that the correct name for this species is P. longispinata, although this name is not listed as a valid name in any of the current lists and is listed by Vogel (2004) as a synonym of P. littoralis. Although this species has been confused with P. littoralis in the past, P. floridana appears to be a distinct species.
