Sertularella gayi  .— Lamouroux, 1821: 12, pl. 66 figs. 8, 9.— Cornelius, 1979: 284 –287, fig. 21.— Ramil & Vervoort, 1992 b: 219 –222, fig. 61.—Ramil et al. 1992: 496, figs. 1 a, 2, 3.— Cornelius, 1979: 284 –287, fig. 21.— Cornelius, 1995 b: 71 –73, fig. 16.—Schuchert, 2001: 98, fig. 83, table 4.— Moura et al., 2011: 524, 525, fig. 3.

Material studied. Gettysburg, stn 10: nine well-developed colonies, on rock; epibionts: Halecium tenellum  , Halecium pusillum  , Clytia cf. gracilis  , Clytia hemisphaerica  , Lafoeina tenuis, Bryozoa  and small algae; DBUA 1528.01.

Remarks. Oceana (2005) refers the occurrence of a Sertularella  species in the Gorringe that could correspond to S. gayi  . The present study corroborates the presence of S. gayi  in shallow waters of the Gorringe Bank.

Reported distribution. Eastern Atlantic.—Relatively widespread species in shallow and deep waters of the NE Atlantic ( Moura et al. 2011): Norway ( Leloup 1940), Iceland, Greenland, Faroe Islands, Scotland ( Broch 1918), UK (e.g. Lamouroux 1821; Hincks 1868; Cornelius 1979), Ireland ( Erwin 1990), N Spain (e.g. Allman 1874; Aguirrezabalaga et al. 1984; Altuna & García-Carrascosa 1990; Alvarez Claudio 1993; Ramil 1988; Cornelius 1979), Portugal ( Billard 1906; Nobre 1931; Da Cunha 1944; Moura et al. 2011), Gulf of Cadiz ( Billard 1906; Ramil & Vervoort 1992 b; Moura et al. 2011), Madeira and Azores (Medel & Vervoort, 1998; Vervoort 2006; Moura et al. 2011), Selvagens ( Vervoort 2006), Canary Islands (Medel & Vervoort 1998; Vervoort 2006), Cape Verde (Medel & Vervoort 1998; Vervoort 2006), Mauritania (Medel & Vervoort 1998), Senegal ( Vervoort 1959), Congo ( Vervoort 1966).

Mediterranean.—Few times reported in Mediterranean coasts of Spain (e.g. De Buen 1934; Gili 1986; Roca 1986; Templado et al. 1986; Medel et al. 1991; Ramil & Vervoort 1992 b).

Elsewhere.—Some (dubious) records from S Atlantic islands, NW Atlantic, South Africa and Pacific ( Ritchie 1907, 1909; Fraser 1944; Rees & Thursfield 1965; Ralph 1961; Vervoort 1972; Park & Rho 1986; Hirohito 1995).
