Halecium interpolatum Ritchie, 1907 

( Fig. 3F View Figure )

Halecium interpolatum  —watson, 2008: 171–172, fig. 7A, B; Peña Cantero, 2014c: 261 –263, figs 5G–J, 8A–B (synonymy).

Material examined. 48EV194, a few tiny stems up to 2 mm high, on S. glacialis  (IK–2012–10437).

Remarks. Incipient stems with up to two hydrothecae. Species easily recognizable by the characteristic long and straight basal part of internodes ( Fig. 3F View Figure ) and the size of the microbasic eurytele nematocysts (10 X 5 µm).

Ecology and distribution. Our material was collected at depths from 325 to 409 m, epibiotic on Symplectoscyphus glacialis  . Watson’s (2008) material was found at a depth of 4–13 m, in Commonwealth Bay. Circum-Antarctic distribution ( Peña Cantero 2014c).
