Cunina frugifera Kramp, 1948 

Remarks: the record by Genzano et al. (2008a) corresponds to a specimen of Pegantha laevis Bigelow, 1909a  . The distribution range provided by Ramírez & Zamponi (1981) is not based on specific records and, therefore, we did not consider that information for this species.

Distribution in South America: medusa—Pacific Ocean, Colombia to Chile, from 5°N to 4.77°N, from 3.50°S to 18.50°S, and at northwest and southwest of Galápagos Archipelago (Alvariño 1976; Segura-Puertas 1984; Cely & Chiquillo 1993); Atlantic Ocean, Brazil to Argentina, from 20.5°S to 40°S (Kramp 1957; Navas-Pereira 1974, 1981; Zamponi 1983a, 1985; Migotto et al. 2002; Genzano et al. 2008a; Bonecker et al. 2014).

Habitat: medusa—up to 1400m depth (Kramp 1957), occurring in warm waters of Atlantic Ocean and southwards to Uruguay (Kramp 1959a; Bonecker et al. 2014).
