Sertularia pyriformis Fraser, 1936c: 51  , pl. 2, figs. 5a–c.

Salacia pyriformis  .— Yamada, 1959: 72.

Syntypes. BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00674-001: Japan, Sagami Bay, Hayama, 7 m, 20 May 1935, on a sponge, one colony, 1.5 cm high, in fairly good condition, with gonothecae; 60% IPAAbout IPA.

BCPM 976-00674-002: Japan, Sagami Bay , Hayama, 7 m, 20 May 1935, on a sponge, four colony fragments, up to 1.1 cm high, in fairly good condition, one fragment with gonothecae; slide. 

Lectotype, by present designation. BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00674-001: Japan, Sagami Bay, Hayama, 7 m, 20 May 1935, on a sponge, one colony, 1.5 cm high, in fairly good condition, with gonothecae; 60% IPAAbout IPA.

Paralectotypes. BCPM 976-00674-002: Japan, Sagami Bay , Hayama, 7 m, 20 May 1935, on a sponge, four colony fragments, up to 1.1 cm high, in fairly good condition, one fragment with gonothecae; slide. 

Type locality. Japan: Sagami Bay , Hayama, 7 m ( Fraser 1936c). 

Current status. Valid, as Salacia pyriformis ( Fraser, 1936c)  .

Remarks. Specimens described and named Sertularia pyriformis  by Fraser (1936c), from the collection of Emperor Hirohito, were collected in Sagami Bay, Japan. While no name-bearing types were designated by Fraser, syntype material exists in the Fraser Hydroid Collection at the RBCMAbout RBCM ( BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00674-001; BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00674- 002). The fluid-preserved specimen ( BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00674-001), a fairly large colony in quite good condition and with multiple gonothecae, is designated here as the lectotype. Other colony fragments on a slide ( BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00674- 002) are paralectotypes.

Five samples of hydroids identified as S. pyriformis  in the Emperor Shōwa Hydroid Collection at the NMNSAbout NMNS (NSMT-HyR 2680–NSMT-HyR 2684, and especially NSMT-HyR 2683) correspond in terms of general collection data with the material of Fraser (1936c).

This species is listed as valid in both Hirohito (1995) and WoRMS under the binomen Salacia pyriformis  .
