Apolemia  sp. 1

Remarks: Pugh (1999) comments that the apolemiids could probably present over ten different species not yet described. Our personal observations are consistent with that view. This taxon is possibly one of these undescribed species.

Distribution in South America: Atlantic Ocean, Brazil, at 27ºS (Araujo 2012; specimens collected in this study).

Habitat: neritic species (Araujo 2012).
