Ectopleura dumortierii (van Beneden, 1844) 

Synonyms in the area: Ectopleura dumortieri  —Navas-Pereira 1974; Palma et al, 2011 [incorrect subsequent spelling] [medusa].

Remarks: the distribution range provided by Ramírez & Zamponi (1981) is not based on specific records and, therefore, we did not consider that information for this species. Schuchert (2010) suggested that the South American material may not belong to van Beneden's (1844) species, but this inference was based on preliminary molecular data of Chilean material. A broader analysis has to be carried out to assess this hypothesis. 

Distribution in South America: polyp—Pacific Ocean, Chile, from 41.67°S to 48.38°S (Galea 2007 p. 31-33; Galea et al. 2009a p. 316; Galea & Schories 2012a p. 23); Atlantic Ocean, Colombia, at Santa Marta coast, Brazil, from 23°S to 24°S (Wedler 1975; Migotto & Silveira 1987; Migotto 1996; Migotto et al. 2002; Cangussu et al. 2010; Silveira & Morandini 2011; Bumbeer & Rocha 2012; Miranda  et al. 2015);

medusa—Pacific Ocean, Colombia to Chile, from 7.25°N to 18.30°S, from 23ºS to 46.67ºS (Fagetti 1973 p. 36; Segura-Puertas 1984; Palma & Rosales 1995; Palma & Apablaza 2004; Apablaza & Palma 2006; Galea 2007 p. 31-33; Palma et al. 2007a p. 70, 2007b p. 74, 80, 2014a; Pavez et al. 2010; Bravo et al. 2011); Atlantic Ocean, Brazil to Uruguay, from 7.55°S to 8.68°S and from 23°S to 35°S (Vannucci 1957, 1963; Moreira 1973, 1978; Navas-Pereira 1974, 1980, 1981; Migotto & Silveira 1987; Migotto 1996; Tronolone 2001, 2008; Migotto et al. 2002; Nogueira Jr. 2012; Nagata et al. 2014a, 2014b; Gusmão et al. 2015; Nogueira Jr. et al. 2015a).

Habitat: polyp—from 2.5 to 32m depth, on rock, wood, polychaete tubes, dead gorgonians, dock chains, test panels (Migotto & Silveira 1987; Migotto 1996; Galea 2007 p. 31-33; Galea et al. 2009a p. 316);

medusa—eurythermic species (Vannucci 1963; Navas-Pereira 1974).
