Crisia  sp.

Crisia  sp.: Bastos et al., 2018: table 1.

Short description. Only incomplete internodes, comprising up to six zooids, are present in the samples; peristomes broken, arranged in alternating series, opening on the branch frontal sides. Small pseudopores scattered across the frontal and dorsal sides of the internodes. Gonozooids not observed.

Geographic distribution. Abrolhos Bank, Bahia State, Brazil ( Bastos et al. 2018; present study). 

Remarks. Small fragments of Crisia  sp. were frequently found inside the reef framework from cores at 15 and 25 m depths. The lack of gonozooids and incomplete internodes makes species identification impossible. Due to the fragility of the small internodes, they could not be easily extracted.
