Eudendrium tenellum Allman, 1877


Eudendrium tenellum Allman, 1877  nomen dubium

Remarks: this species was first described by Allman (1877) based on specimens without hydranths and gonophores, and therefore, it was considered by Calder (1988 p.42, 43) as a nomen dubium.

Habitat: polyp—from 37 to 274m depth (Fraser 1938b, 1948; Calder et al. 2003).
