Scandia mutabilis (Ritchie, 1907b) 

Remarks: Migotto (1996), based on scarce and non-fertile material, remarked that his material was similar to those of Calder (1991:28), “especially with regard to their cylindrical shape”. Nevertheless, Migotto considered his identification provisional.

Distribution in South America: polyp—Pacific Ocean, Colombia, at 6.78°N 77.60°W in Octavia Bay, Ecuador, from 1.5°N to 1.5°S in Galápagos Archipelago, at 0.56°N 80.01°W in San Francisco Bay (Fraser 1938a, 1938b, 1939, 1948; Calder et al. 2003); Atlantic Ocean, at Aruba Island, Brazil, at 9.80°S 35°W, from 23.36°S to 27.13°S (Leloup 1935; Migotto 1996; Migotto et al. 2002; Shimabukuro 2007; Maronna et al. 2008, abstract; Silveira & Morandini 2011; Miranda  et al. 2015).

Habitat: polyp—from intertidal zone to 73m depth, on hydroids (Fraser 1938a, 1938b; Migotto 1996; Calder et al. 2003; Shimabukuro 2007).
