Material examined. MAURIT-0911, stn MUDR06, 17º40´22”N, 16º40´11”W, 435 m, 10-XII-2009: four colonies, without phylactocarps GoogleMaps   .

Biology. Colonies of S. multiseptatus   with phylactocarps and gonothecae have been found only in November ( Ramil & Vervoort 2008).

Our material was found on the cold-water coral mound barrier.

Distribution. This species is known from Australia, Bay of Biscay, Alboran Sea and the Sahara coast; its bathymetric distribution ranges from 135 to 576 m ( Ramil & Vervoort 2008). In West Africa, S. multiseptatus   was reported in Western Sahara ( Ramil & Vervoort 2008) and also in Mauritania ( Gil & Ramil 2017a).

Our material was collected from a depth of 435 m off Nouakchott, representing the southernmost record of the species in the Atlantic Ocean   .

Remarks. The material examined by us is consistent with the description of S. multiseptatus   given by Ramil & Vervoort (2008) on the basis of material collected off the Sahara coast.
