status

 

Billardia subrufa (Jäderholm, 1904a) 

Synonyms in the area: Campanularia subrufa Jäderholm, 1904a  , 1905 [polyp].

Remarks: the genus Billardia Totton, 1930  have been placed outside the family Campanulariidae  in phylogenetic studies (Govindarajan et al. 2006), and was shown to be more closely related to species of Hebellidae  (Peña Cantero et al. 2010; Moura et al. 2011). Its taxonomic affinities, however, remain uncertain, and it is here retained in the family Campanulariidae  , pending more detailed study.

Distribution in South America: polyp—Atlantic Ocean, Argentina, at 52.38°S 63.84°W and at Shag Rocks (Jäderholm 1904a, 1905; Nutting 1915; Totton 1930; Genzano & Zamponi 1997).

Habitat: polyp—from 160 to 229m depth (Jäderholm 1904a, 1905; Totton 1930).
