Aglaophenia rhynchocarpa Allman, 1877 

(figs 1 K, 8 G –I)

Aglaophenia rhynchocarpa Allman, 1877: 40  , pl. 23 figs 5–8.― Vervoort, 1968: 73, fig. 34.― Calder, 1997: 59, fig. 18.

Material examined. Stn. 8: 0 5.12 .2009, 17 m—numerous cormoids to 4 cm high, some bearing corbulae, on unidentified substrate (parts as MHNG-INVE- 68734 and MNHN-IK. 2009 - 811).

Remarks. For synonymy and a description of its trophosome, see Calder (1997). The corbula has been briefly, though correctly described and illustrated by both Jäderholm (1903, as Aglaophenia cylindrata Versluys, 1899  ) and Vervoort (1968), while the accounts and figures provided by Allman (1877) and Nutting (1900, as A. rathbuni  ) are misleading. Ideally, its highly complex structure should be thoroughly described based on images obtained by scanning electron microscopy. Figure 8 I shows a lateral view of the corbula.

Caribbean records. Los Testigos (Versluys 1899, as A. cylindrata  ), Anguilla ( Jäderholm 1903, as A. cylindrata  ), Tortugas ( Wallace 1909), off Barbados (Nutting 1919), Puerto Rico ( Fraser 1944), Virgin islands ( Vervoort 1968).

World distribution. Florida ( Allman 1877, Nutting 1900), off La Havana ( Nutting 1900; Fraser 1944), Brazil ( Nutting 1900, Vervoort 1946, both as A. rathbuni  ), Sierra Leone ( Vervoort 1959, pro parte, as A. latecarinata Allman, 1877  ), Bermuda ( Ritchie 1909, Bennitt 1922, both as A. cylindrata  ; Calder 1997), Colombia ( Flórez González 1983).
