Egmundella amirantensis Millard & Bouillon, 1973: 40–42   , fig. 5A–D; Ramil & Vervoort, 1992: 22–24, fig. 2a–d; Peña Cantero & García Carrascosa, 2002: 48–49, fig. 10a–d; Migotto & Cabral, 2005: 3–13, figs 1–3.

Lafoeina amirantensis: Calder, 1991: 10   , fig. 3; Calder & Vervoort, 1998: 15–16, fig 5a–c.

Material examined. MAURIT-0911, stn MUDR05: 18º08´43”N, 16º35´42”W, 421 m, 8-XII-2009: one colony, on bryozoan, without gonothecae GoogleMaps   .

Biology. This species has been reported growing mainly on other hydroids and rocks, algae and other invertebrates ( Peña Cantero & García Carrascosa 2002; Migotto & Cabral 2005). Fertile material has been found during the austral summer in the Seychelles ( Millard & Bouillon 1973) and Brazil ( Migotto & Cabral 2005).

The colony studied by us was found on a bryozoan.

Distribution. Cirrholovenia tetranema   is a circumglobal species ( Calder 1991; Peña Cantero & García Carrascosa 2002); its geographical distribution was sumarised by Migotto & Cabral (2005). In West Africa, it was collected from Morocco ( Ramil & Vervoort 1992) and Mauritania ( Gil & Ramil 2017a). The bathymetric distribution ranges from 1 to 1062 m ( Calder 1991; Calder & Vervoort 1998).

Our material was collected from a depth of 421 m.
