status

 

Paulinum punctatum (Vanhöffen, 1911) 

Remarks: Brinckmann-Voss & Arai (1998) proposed the new genus Paulinum  in order to accommodate the species Dicodonium punctatum Vanhöffen, 1911  , removing it from Corynidae  , although with an inconclusive taxonomic position, among the Capitata  incertae sedis  . Schuchert (2001) considered the species described and named by Vanhöffen (1911) to be problematic. We consider the record as doubtful, requiring new data, material, and broader revision.

Distribution in South America: medusa—Atlantic Ocean, Brazil, from 26°S to 26.5°S (Kramp 1961; Migotto et al. 2002; Nogueira Jr. 2012).
