Material examined

PACIFIC OCEAN • 1 colony, ca 46 cm high, bearing 11 plumose side branches, without gonothecae, hydrothecae with mostly damaged rims; off New Caledonia, stn DW5038 ; 19°55ʹ S, 158°35ʹ E; 340 m; 22 Sep. 2017; KANADEEP leg.; MNHN-IK-2015-546 GoogleMaps   .

Remarks

The present material agrees well with descriptions of Lytocarpia spiralis ( Totton, 1930)   by Ralph (1961) and Vervoort & Watson (2003) but, since it is devoid of its gonosome and the condition of the hydrothecal rim could not be assessed properly, it is assigned with a query to it.

Distribution

Previously known from waters around New Zealand ( Vervoort & Watson 2003); New Caledonia (present study).
