Clytia similis Fraser, 1947 

Remarks: this species was considered conspecific with Clytia hemisphaerica (Linnaeus, 1767)  by Calder (1991), but here we follow Calder et al. (2009) and retain the original name given by Fraser (1947), pending more detailed study.

Distribution in South America: polyp—Atlantic Ocean, Venezuela, at 10.84ºN 63.90ºW in Isla Coche, at 10.82ºN 64.26ºW in Isla Cubagua (Fraser 1947; Calder et al. 2009).

Habitat: polyp—from 4 to 60m depth, on algae, bryozoan and stem of Eudendrium  (Fraser 1947; Calder et al. 2009).
