Campanularia megalocarpa Fraser, 1947


Campanularia megalocarpa Fraser, 1947 

Remarks: Calder et al. (2009), after examination of Fraser’s specimen, concluded that the material does not conform with the genus Campanularia  and further study is necessary to determine whether it should be assigned to the Clytiinae or Obeliinae. Here we follow Calder et al. (2009) and also retain the original name given by Fraser (1947) pending more detailed study.

Distribution in South America: polyp—Atlantic Ocean, Venezuela, at 11.18ºN 64.28ºW, off Margarita Island (Fraser 1947; Calder et al. 2009).

Habitat: polyp—from 38 to 40m depth (Fraser 1947; Calder et al. 2009).
