Zanclea migottoi Galea, 2008 

Synonyms in the area: Zanclea costata  —Migotto 1996; Migotto et al. 2002; Oliveira et al. 2006; Oliveira & Marques 2007; Shimabukuro 2007 [polyp].

Remarks: the material assigned to Z. costata Gegenbaur, 1856a  by Migotto (1996) was regarded as conspecific with those from the Caribbean Sea and Azores studied by Galea (2008 p. 14–16) and described as the new species Zanclea migottoi  . We believe that the subsequent records of the hydroid stage of Z. costata  for the Brazilian coast would be Z. migottoi  . Records for Z. costata  in the Brazilian coast, based on the medusa stage alone, may be considered doubtful.

Distribution in South America: polyp—Atlantic Ocean, Brazil, from 23.5°S to 24°S (Migotto 1996; Oliveira et al. 2006; Oliveira & Marques 2007; Shimabukuro 2007);

Habitat: polyp—from 1 to 52m depth, on algae and Crisevia pseudolena (Vannucci 1957; Migotto 1996; Shimabukuro 2007);
