status

 

? Filellum serpens (Hassall, 1848) 

Remarks: the examination of the reproductive structures are very important for determination of Filellum  species. All reports of this species described colonies without coppinia and, consequently, the records have to be confirmed based on fertile material (see Marques et al. 2011 for further details).

Distribution in South America: polyp—Pacific Ocean, Chile, in Calbuco and Juán Fernandez Archipelago (Hartlaub 1905 p. 596–597); Atlantic Ocean, Argentina, from 52°S to 56°S (Jäderholm 1905 p. 22, 1910; Stepanjants 1979; El Beshbeeshy 1991, 2011; Blanco 1994a; Genzano & Zamponi 1997; Seo 2003).

Habitat: polyp—from 80 to 835m depth (Hartlaub 1905 p. 596–597; Jäderholm 1905 p. 22, 1910; Stepanjants 1979; El Beshbeeshy 1991, 2011; Blanco 1994a; Seo 2003).
