status

 

Sphaerocoryne bedoti Pictet, 1893 

Synonyms in the area:? Corynitis agassizii  —Fraser 1938a; Calder et al. 2003 [polyp]; Syncoryne flexibilis Fraser, 1938a  , 1948 [polyp];? Syncoryne mirabilis  —Fraser 1938a [part]; Calder et al. 2003 [polyp].

Remarks: Calder et al. (2003) examined Fraser’s material and considered the record of Corynitis agassizii McCrady, 1859  to be a probable misidentification of Sphaerocoryne bedoti Pictet, 1893  . He also examined part of Fraser’s specimens identified as Syncoryne mirabilis (L. Agassiz, 1849)  and concluded that they also resemble S. bedoti Pictet, 1893  .

Distribution in South America: polyp—Pacific Ocean, Colombia, at 5.99°N 77.36°W in Port Utria, at 2.99°N 78.199°W in Gorgona Island, Ecuador, at 1.38°N 91.82°W in Isla Wolf (Fraser 1938a, 1948; Calder et al. 2003).

Habitat: polyp—on Pavona  sp., coral and sponges, at low tide (Fraser 1938a; Calder et al. 2003).
