Small bulb-like corymorph hydrozoan found attached to a nodule with the crown apparently retracted (Fig. 12).

Genetic data for this taxa with new Genbank accession numbers are provided in Table 2.


Phylogenetic analyses based on gene data suggest that this hydrozoan fall within the family Corymorphidae (tree not showed).
