Remarks. The material we collected in shallow water off Park Rynie, Natal and sequenced here corresponds morphologically to the syntypes, which were collected nearby in deeper waters, and are described and illustrated well by Bayer (1995). We include SEMs of the sclerites of the shallow-water material for comparison ( Fig. 9View FIGURE9).
