Asterocheres echinicola (Norman, 1868) is a common associate of marine sponges (Halichondria, Haliclona, Grantia) on the Dutch North Sea and French Channel coasts. It is proved that A. kervillei Canu, 1898, is a synonym of A. echinicola and that Sars (1915), Klie (1933), and Lang (1949) recorded this species under the erroneous name Ascomyzon parvum.
