( Fig. 3E, F View FIGURE 3 ; Table 4)

Reptadeonella brasiliensis ALMEIDA, SOUZA, SANNER & VIEIRA, 2015   : P. 357, fIgS 19–28, 39, 40 (CUM SYN.).

Material examined. UFBA 1636, UFBA 1645, on valves of Pinctada imbricata   .

Description. Colony encrusting ( Fig. 3E View FIGURE 3 ), unilaminar. Autozooids hexagonal to rhomboidal ( Fig. 3F View FIGURE 3 ), surrounded by 18–25 large, marginal pores. Frontal wall centrally imperforate, finely granular. Primary orifice transversely elliptical, wider than long, occupying about one-sixth of orifice length. Areolar pore transversely narrow, placed immediately proximal to orificial rim, visible in some zooids ( Fig. 3F View FIGURE 3 , arrow). Secondary orifice raised, surrounded by a calcification with small nodules around the rim. Suboral avicularium median, triangular, rostrum directed distally, extending about half to one-third of zooidal length. Spiramen ( Fig. 3F View FIGURE 3 , circle) crescentic, placed approximately in the center of the frontal wall, below the suboral avicularium. Gonozooid not observed.

Remarks. Reptadeonella brasiliensis   is among the commonest intertidal cheilostomes in NE Brazil, frequently found attached to hard substrata such as other bryozoans, shells and rocks ( Almeida et al. 2015b).

Distribution. Western Atlantic: Brazil (Ceará to Bahia; Fernando de Noronha) (Almeida et al. 2015b).
