Sertularella conica Allman, 1877 

Synonyms in the area: Sertularella tenella  —Jäderholm 1903; Nutting 1904; Vannucci 1951a [non Sertularella tenella Alder, 1856  ] [polyp]; Sertularella inconstans  —Vannucci Mendes 1946; Vannucci 1949, 1950, 1951a; Wedler 1975 [non Sertularella inconstans Billard, 1919  ] [polyp].

Remarks: Galea (2013 p. 22) considered the record by Migotto (1996) as Sertularella peculiaris Leloup, 1974  , but the records included herein were not formally assigned to Leloup’s species. A thorough revision of the materials is necessary to elucidate this doubt, ideally including molecular comparisons.

Distribution in South America: polyp—Atlantic Ocean, Colombia, at Santa Marta coast, Venezuela, La Tortuga Island, Brazil, from 18.30°S to 24.20°S, from 27.13°S to 27.21°S, from 31.50ºS to 32.50ºS, Argentina, from 38.25°S to 56°S (Jäderholm 1903; Nutting 1904; Vannucci Mendes 1946; Vannucci 1949, 1950, 1951a; Van Gemerden-Hoogeveen 1965; Vervoort 1972; Wedler 1975; Stepanjants 1979; Blanco 1982, 1994a; Migotto 1996; Genzano & Zamponi 1997, 2003; Grohmann 1997, 2006; Grohmann et al. 1997; Horta et al. 2001, abstract; Migotto et al. 2002, 2004; Shimabukuro 2007; Genzano et al. 2009a; Silveira & Morandini 2011; Miranda  et al. 2011, 2015).
