Eucodonium brownei Hartlaub, 1907 

Synonyms in the area: Eucodonium brownie  —Moreira 1973 [medusa] [incorrect subsequent spelling].

Remarks: medusa assigned to the family Eucodoniidae  by Bouillon (1999) and Genzano et al. (2008a). The distribution range provided by Ramírez & Zamponi (1981) is not based on specific records and, therefore, we did not consider that information for this species.

Distribution in South America: medusa—Atlantic Ocean, Brazil to Argentina, from 20°S to 30°S, from 38.50°S to 49.34°S (Vannucci 1957, 1963; Moreira 1973; Zamponi 1983a; Migotto et al. 2002; Genzano et al. 2008a).

Habitat: medusa—oceanic waters, up to 30m depth (Zamponi 1983a; Vannucci 1963).
