Corella  sp.

Material:

Lobos Island, 37 ° S – 55 ° 21 ’ W, 69m, 29 / 12 / 1966, Calypso survey n° 169.

The single specimen of 4.5cm is much damaged. The only part remaining in acceptable condition is the rectum. The anus has numerous finger-like lobes. The gonoducts are clearly apparent along the rectum with some eggs into the oviduct. Both genital papillae open close to the anus. This structure is reminiscent of that of C. brewinae  but no reliable identification can be made with so few anatomical characters.
