Coryne corrugata Fraser, 1925 

Coryne corrugata Fraser, 1925: 167  , fig. 1.

Coryne corrigata  .— Berrill, 1953: 297, figs. 12B, C [incorrect subsequent spelling].

Syntypes. CAS-IZ 21798.00: USA, California, San Diego County, San Diego , near jetty, 0 3 May 1902; 10% formalin. 

BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00128-001: USA, California, San Diego, near jetty, 0 3 May 1902, labelled "co-type"; 60% IPAAbout IPA.

Lectotype, by present designation. CAS-IZ 2 27311: USA, California, San Diego County, San Diego , near jetty, 0 3 May 1902, fragment of a colony, ca. 3.5 cm high, in good condition, without gonophores; 10% formalin. 

Paralectotypes. CAS-IZ 21798.00: USA, California, San Diego County, San Diego , near jetty, 0 3 May 1902, several colony fragments, in good condition, without gonophores; 10% formalin. 

BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00128-001: USA, California, San Diego, near jetty, 0 3 May 1902, several colony fragments, up to ca. 3 cm high, in fair condition, without gonophores, labelled "co-type"; 60% IPAAbout IPA.

Type locality. USA, California: San Diego , near a jetty ( Fraser 1925). 

Current status. Species inquirenda.

Remarks. In describing Coryne corrugata, Fraser (1925)  did not designate name-bearing types of the species. Specimens considered parts of the type series exist at CASAbout CAS (CAS-IZ 21 798.00) and in the Fraser Hydroid Collection at the RBCMAbout RBCM ( BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00128-001). The CASAbout CAS material is in good condition, and the best specimen available from this syntype series is designated here as the lectotype (CAS-IZ 227311). The material at the RBCMAbout RBCM may have been dry sometime in the past ( Schuchert 2001b), but is in fair condition, with some of the hydranths still being reasonably well preserved; the fragments constitute paralectotypes.

Fraser (1925) described C. corrugata  on the basis of infertile material. For that reason, Schuchert (2001b) included it in a group of “problematic or indeterminable species.” Nevertheless, he maintained that material identified as Coryne corrigata  (sic) by Berrill (1953: figs. 12B, C) was likely identified correctly. Berrill provided no information about the source of his hydroid other than referring to it as “… Coryne corrigata Fraser  of the Pacific coast….”. Coryne corrugata  is a species needing further study.
