MATERIAL EXAMINED. — Loyalty Islands. MUSOR- STOM 6 , stn CP 464, 21°02.30’S, 167°31.60’E, 430 m, 21.II.1989, one damaged colony as epibiontic on Plumulariidae   GoogleMaps   ; no gonothecae ( MNHN).

DISTRIBUTION. — Kirchenpaueria bonnevieae   is widely distributed in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, with some isolated records in the West Pacific ( Ansín Agís et al. 2001). In the Atlantic it has been recorded from many localities, from Norway (Trondhjem Fjord) to South Africa, and also from one locality in the Mediterranean Sea (Alborán Sea). In the Indian Ocean it has reported from South Africa, Mozambique, Zanzibar, Tanzania, Oman and Kerguelen. In the Pacific it is only known from Sagami Bay and New Zealand.Bathymetric distribution between 11 and 1280 m. Our material comes from a single station in the Loyalty Islands, at 430 m.

VARIABILITY

Many internodes with two mesial inferior nematothecae.

Chalcal 2 Stn DW 80

Height of colony (in mm) 22

Stem internode, length 640-3070

Diameter at node 150-270

Length thecate hydrocladial internodes 530-570

Diameter at node 80-100

Hydrotheca

Length abcauline wall 200-230

Length adnate adcauline wall 300-330

Length free part adcauline wall 35-60

Diameter at rim 230-250

Mesial nematotheca, length 50-60

Diameter at rim 40-60

REMARKS

Material studied from the Loyalty Islands is characterized by several internodes with two mesial inferior nematothecae. Despite this variation, the morphology of the colony is identical with those of K. bonnevieae   .
