Sertularella simplex (Hutton, 1873)


Sertularella simplex (Hutton, 1873)  

Synonyms in the area:? Sertularella ellisii   f. lagenoides —Leloup 1974 p. 28 [polyp]; Sertularella peregrina   —Leloup 1974 p. 31–32 [polyp].

Remarks: Galea & Schories (2012a p. 46) considered that “Leloup’s (1974) material assigned to both S. ellisi   f. lagenoides and S. peregrina   may belong to either this species [ Sertularella   sp.] or S. mixta   , since no measurements allowing a reliable comparison were provided by this author”. Moreover, Sertularella peregrina Bale, 1926   is considered a synonym of Sertularia simplex   in WoRMS (Schuchert 2016). Given the uncertainties about these records, we conservatively include them in the synonym of S. simplex   , pending more detailed study.

Distribution in South America: polyp—Pacific Ocean, Chile, at north of Coquimbo and in Puerto Melinka, Guaitecas Archipelago (Leloup 1974 p. 28, 31–32).

Habitat: polyp—on algae (Leloup 1974 p. 28, 31–32).
