Amphisbetia operculata (Linnaeus, 1758) 

Synonyms in the area: Dynamena pulchella d’Orbigny, 1839  [polyp]; Sertularia operculata  —Allman 1888 p. 61–62; Jäderholm 1903 p. 284, 1904b p. 4, 1905; Nutting 1904; Hartlaub 1905 p. 664–668; Fraser 1938b, 1948; Blanco 1963, 1966b, 1976a [polyp];? Amphisbetia pulchella  —Vannucci 1954 [polyp]; Dynamena operculata  —Genzano & Zamponi 1997 [polyp].

Remarks: the material described by Vannucci (1954) as Amphisbetia pulchella (d’Orbigny, 1846)  is similar to Amphisbetia operculata  described by Cornelius (1995). Migotto et al. (2002), however, considered the presence of Amphisbetia operculata in Brazilian  waters as doubtful. The species was recorded for Argentina as Sertularia operculata  by Blanco (1963).

Distribution in South America: polyp—Pacific Ocean, Peru, at 6.95°S 80.70°W in Isla Lobos de Afuera, Chile, at 29.22°S 71.55°W, and from 41.70°S to the Strait of Magellan (Allman 1888 p. 61–62; Jäderholm 1903 p. 284, 1904b p. 4; Hartlaub 1905 p. 664–668; Fraser 1938b, 1948; Leloup 1974 p.25; Galea et al. 2007b p. 312, 2007c p.

64–66; Galea & Schories 2012a p. 22); Atlantic Ocean, Brazil to Argentina, from 21.25°S to 56°S (d’Orbigny 1846; Jäderholm 1903, 1905; Nutting 1904; Hartlaub 1905; Vannucci 1954; Blanco 1963, 1966b, 1976a, 1994a; Vervoort 1972; El Beshbeeshy 1991, 2011; Genzano & Zamponi 1997, 2003; Migotto et al. 2002; Genzano et al. 2002, 2003, 2008b, 2009a, 2011; López-Gappa & Sueiro 2006; Genzano 2010; Grohmann et al. 2011; Meretta & Genzano 2015; Miranda  et al. 2015).

Habitat: polyp—from shallow waters to 400m depth, on algae, buoys, hydroids, mussels, rocks, shells (d’Orbigny 1846; Allman 1888 p. 61–62; Jäderholm 1903 p. 284, 1905; Nutting 1904; Hartlaub 1905 p. 664–668; Fraser, 1938b; Blanco 1963, 1966b, 1976a, 1994a; Vervoort 1972; Leloup 1974 p. 25; El Beshbeeshy 1991, 2011; Genzano et al. 2002, 2003, 2009a; Galea et al. 2007b p. 312, 2007c p. 64–66; Genzano 2010; Meretta & Genzano 2015; Miranda  et al. 2015).
