Voucher material. Bessie Cove , north of St. Lucie Inlet, 27°11’07”N, 80°09’41”W, on seagrass, <0.5 m, 19.ii.1991, collected manually, one colony in two fragments, up to 4 mm high, without gonophores, coll. D.R. Calder, ROMIZ B1117 GoogleMaps .

Remarks. A taxonomic account of Symmetroscyphus intermedius ( Congdon, 1907) has been given earlier ( Calder 1991a). Occurring in shallow-waters with algal symbionts in its tissues, this species is found on substrates such as seagrasses, algae, prop roots of red mangroves, and other hydroids ( Calder 1991c; Kaehler & Hughes 1992; Galea 2008; Castellanos Iglesias et al. 2011). Gonophores of S. intermedius remain undescribed.

Reported distribution. Atlantic coast of Florida. First record.

Western Atlantic: Bermuda ( Calder 1991a) to the Caribbean Sea ( Calder & Kirkendale 2005; Castellanos Iglesias et al. 2011).
