Clytia macrotheca ( Perkins, 1908)  

(fig. 4 C, table 4)

Campanularia macrotheca Perkins, 1908: 146   , pl. 3 figs 12–13.— Fraser, 1944: 143, pl. 25 fig. 115. Laomedea macrotheca   – Leloup, 1935: 21, fig. 8.

Clytia macrotheca   — Calder, 1991 d: 64, fig. 35.

Material examined. Stn. 6: 23.03.2008 —a couple of polyps, less than 2 mm high, no gonothecae, on Halimeda   sp. Stn. 7: 25.03.2008 —two small polyps, but no gonothecae, on Halimeda   sp.

Type locality. Fort Jefferson, Dry Tortugas, Florida, United States.

Remarks. Though confidently identifiable, the present material is scarce and sterile, and therefore not suitable for a new description of this species. For a recent redescription of its trophosome, see Calder (1991 d), who also commented on its synonymy. Fertile specimens were originally found by Perkins (1908), but no data are currently available on the mature medusa.

Distribution. Western Atlantic ( Calder 1991 d).
