Labioporella tuberculata Winston, Vieira & Woollacott, 2014 

( Fig. 2BView FIGURE 2)

Labioporella tuberculata Winston et al., 2014: 144  , figs 2, 3; Vieira et al., 2016: 75, figs 32–34; Bastos et al., 2018: table 1.

Material examined. Abrolhos Bank, Bahia State, Brazil: MNRJ-Bry1337, Parcel dos Abrolhos, 15 m depth, February 2014, col. R. Moura, G. Amado-Filho & A. Bastos. 

Short description. Colony encrusting, autozooids rectangular with rounded distal edges, disposed in quincunx and separated from each other by a raised edge. Cryptocyst granular and porous. A pair of tubercles frequently present at the proximal corners. Avicularia absent in this material.

Geographic distribution. Alagoas and Bahia states ( Vieira et al. 2016; Bastos et al. 2018; present study).

Remarks. Specimens found at Abrolhos were very similar to those described by Winston et al. (2014) and Vieira et al. (2016). Labioporella tuberculata  resembles L. dipla Marcus, 1949  , also described from Brazil (Espírito Santo State), but L. dipla  has a prominent tubercle on the distal wall beneath the operculum, smaller zooids and lacks tubercles at the proximal corners of the zooids. Another similar species is L. granulosa ( Canu & Bassler, 1928b)  , described from the Gulf of Mexico, which also lacks corner tubercles.
