Plumularia setacea (Linnaeus, 1758) 

Synonyms in the area: Plumularia corrugata  —Fraser 1938b, 1948; Calder et al. 2003; Plumularia diploptera  —El Beshbeeshy 1991 [polyp] [polyp]. Plumularia spiralis Milstein, 1976  (syn. nov.) [non Plumularia spiralis Billard, 1911  ] [polyp].

Remarks: the specific name Plumularia spiralis  was proposed by Milstein (1976) for a plumulariid from Uruguay, but we believe this species is most likely a junior synonym of P. s e t a c ea. In any event, the name given by Milstein (1976) would be invalid because it is a homonym of Plumularia spiralis Billard, 1911  .

Distribution in South America: polyp—Pacific Ocean, Colombia, at 6.78°N 77.60°W in Octavia Bay, Ecuador, from 1.4°N to 1.4°S in Galápagos Archipelago, Chile, from 29°S to 55.28°S (Jäderholm 1904b p. 6, 1910 p. 5; 1920 p.8; Hartlaub 1905 p. 680–681; Fraser 1938a, 1938b, 1948; Leloup 1974 p. 49–50; Calder et al. 2003; Galea 2007 p. 82–83; Galea & Leclère 2007 p. 41–43; Galea et al. 2009a p. 350–351; Galea & Schories 2012a p. 22–24); Atlantic Ocean, Colombia, at Santa Marta coast, Brazil to Argentina, from 20°S to 55°S (Jäderholm 1920; Vannucci Mendes 1946; Vannucci 1949, 1950, 1951a, 1951b; Blanco 1966a, 1976a, 1994a, 1994b; Wedler 1975; Milstein 1976; Bandel & Wedler 1987; El Beshbeeshy 1991, 2011; Genzano et al. 1991, 2002, 2003, 2009a, 2011; Genzano 1994a, 1994b, 1998, 2010; Genzano & Zamponi 1997, 2003; Genzano & Rodriguez 1998; Grohmann et al. 1997; Nogueira et al. 1997; Migotto et al. 2002; Grohmann et al. 2003, 2008, abstract; López-Gappa & Sueiro 2006; Silveira & Morandini 2011; Meretta & Genzano 2015; Miranda  et al. 2015).

Habitat: polyp—from shallow waters to 300m depth, on Acanthodesia sarvartii  , algae, gorgonians, hydroids, mussels, polychaete tubes, buoys, wood and ropes (Jäderholm 1910 p. 5; Fraser 1938a, 1938b, 1948; Vannucci Mendes 1946; Vannucci 1950; Leloup 1974 p. 49–50; Blanco 1976a, 1994b; Milstein 1976; Bandel & Wedler 1987; Genzano et al. 1991, 2002, 2003, 2009a; El Beshbeeshy 1991, 2011; Blanco 1994; Genzano & Rodriguez 1998; Genzano & Zamponi 2003; Galea 2007 p. 82–83; Galea et al. 2009a p. 350–351; Genzano 2010; Meretta & Genzano 2015; Miranda  et al. 2015).
