Type locality. “Habitat in Oceano, saepe in Corallina rubente  ” ( Mediterranean Sea ) ( Linnaeus 1767: 1315)  .

Material examined. Southwest Florida Shelf, outer shelf NW of the Dry Tortugas, 25°16.83’N, 83°57.35’W, 127 m, 03 August 1981, triangle dredge, two colony fragments, 13 mm and 6 mm high, without gonophores, coll. Continental Shelf Associates, ROMIZ B449.

Remarks. Although not reported before from southwest Florida, Corydendrium parasiticum  is widely distributed in tropical and subtropical waters of the western Atlantic Ocean ( Calder & Kirkendale 2005; Galea 2013; Oliveira et al. 2016). Specimens examined here were collected at the deep end of its known bathymetric range (1–127 m). An overview of the species is given in Schuchert (2004).

Reported distribution. Gulf coast of Florida. First record.
