Hebella  ? dispolians (Warren, 1909) 

Synonyms in the area:? Hebella cf. dispolians  —Galea 2007 p. 51 [polyp].

Remarks: this species is insufficiently known and its gonotheca still has not been described. The specimens studied by Galea (2007) differ somewhat from the South-African material studied both by Warren (1909) and Millard (1975) in their dimensions and tentacle number—these materials may belong to different species. Moreover, fertile material and life cycle studies are needed to elucidate its taxonomical status.

Distribution in South America: polyp—Pacific Ocean, Chile, at 49.18°S in Camello Island (Galea 2007 p. 51).

Habitat: polyp—at 12m depth, on Symplectoscyphus filiformis  (Galea 2007 p. 51).
