Halopteris diaphana (Heller, 1868) 

Synonyms in the area: Antenella diaphana  forme typica —Leloup 1935 [polyp]; Antenella diaphana  forme siliquosa —Leloup 1935 [polyp]; Thecocaulus diaphanus  —Vannucci Mendes 1946 [polyp]; Schizotricha diaphana  —Vannucci 1949, 1950 [polyp]; Schizotricha billardi Vannucci 1951b  , 1954 [polyp]; Halopteris constricta  —Migotto 1996; Miranda  et al. 2015 [part] [polyp]. 

Remarks: Galea (2013 p. 34) remarked that some materials listed herein, like that by Migotto (1996, in part, see below), “may belong” to Halopteris tenella (Verrill, 1874)  . Close comparisons of both materials, including molecular analysis, are necessary to resolve this doubt.

Distribution in South America: polyp—Atlantic Ocean, at Aruba Island, at Curaçao Island, at Bonaire Island, Colombia, at Santa Marta coast, Brazil, at 3.81°S 32.42°W, at 9.84°S 35.88°W, from 20°S to 26.99°S, from 31.50°S to 32.50°S (Leloup 1935; Vannucci Mendes 1946; Vannucci 1949, 1950, 1951a, 1951b, 1954; Wedler 1975; Bandel & Wedler 1987; Pires et al. 1992; Migotto 1996; Grohmann 1997, 2006; Grohmann et al. 1997, 2003; Nogueira et al. 1997; Rosso & Marques 1997; Schuchert 1997; Horta et al. 2001, abstract; Migotto et al. 2002; Oliveira 2003; Oliveira et al. 2006; Oliveira & Marques 2007, 2011; Shimabukuro 2007; Maronna et al. 2008, abstract; Amaral et al. 2009; Cunha & Jacobucci 2010; Silveira & Morandini 2011; Marques et al. 2013; Miranda  et al. 2015).

Habitat: polyp—on intertidal zone to 22m depth, on algae, bryozoans, Clavelina oblonga  , rocks ( Vannucci Mendes 1946; Vannucci 1950; Bandel & Wedler 1987; Pires et al. 1992; Migotto 1996; Schuchert 1997; Oliveira 2003; Oliveira et al. 2006; Oliveira & Marques 2007, 2 0 11; Shimabukuro 2007; Cunha & Jacobucci 2010).
