REMARKS

The examined sample is the first outside the Canopus Bank, a bank located off Fortaleza, Ceará. This new occurrence expands the geographic distribution little more than 1000 km southwards. The weakly sculptured shell is one of the characters of this species ( Fig. 3J, K View FIG ), as well as the sinuous, high variable shell borders ( Fig. 3I, L View FIG ) which fit in the cnidarian colony in which the animal lives ( Simone 2005b; Braga-Henriques et al. 2010).
