status

 

Zanclea gemmosa McCrady, 1859 

Synonyms in the area: Gemmaria gemosa  —Fraser 1938a; Calder et al. 2003 [polyp].

Remarks: according to Calder et al. (2003), the identification of a polyp stage as Zanclea gemmosa McCrady, 1859  is questionable because this species was originally described only from the medusa stage.

Distribution in South America: polyp—Pacific Ocean, Colombia, at 5.99°N 77.36°W in Port Utria, Ecuador, at 0.27°S 91.37°W in Isla Isabela, at 1.35°S 89.66°W in Isla Española (Fraser 1938a, 1939, 1 948; Calder et al. 2003).

Habitat: polyp—on gastropods and sponge, from 46 to 64m depth (Fraser 1938a; Calder et al. 2003).
