Filellum serratum ( Clarke, 1879) 

(fig. 4 H, I)

Lafoëa serrata Clarke, 1879: 244  , pl. 4 fig. 25.

Filellum serratum  ― Peña Cantero et al., 1998: 304, figs 1, 2.

Material examined. Stn. 9: 21.11 .2009, 21 m—numerous hydrothecae creeping on surface of worm tubes and stems of Halecium tenellum Hincks, 1861  . Stn. 12: 30.11 .2009, 12– 15 m—rare hydrothecae on worm tube and stems of Sertularia tongensis ( Stechow, 1919)  . Stn. 20: 26.11 .2009, 20 m—numerous hydrothecae on hydrorhiza of Pennaria disticha Goldfuss, 1820  .

Remarks. Though sterile, the present material is assigned to Clarke’s (1879) species partly on the account of the presence of numerous close-set ridges on the abaxial wall of the adnate part of hydrothecae, and partly on the Caribbean origin of the type.

Caribbean records. Off Grenada ( Fraser 1943).
