Gephyrophora imperfecta Canu & Bassler, 1928a: 86   , pl. 7, fig. 1.

Material examined. UFBA 2065, UFBA 2395, Camamu Bay, 13°53’S, 38°59’W, 18–20 m, coll. October 2012 (on sponge Myrmekioderma   sp.). GoogleMaps  

Remarks. Hippaliosina imperfecta   is characterized by having encrusting colonies ( Fig. 60 View FIGURES 60 – 65. 60 – 61 ), more or less hexagonal zooids, oblong autozooidal orifices, and small down-curved and elongate avicularia (frequently paired) placed laterally to the orifice ( Fig. 61 View FIGURES 60 – 65. 60 – 61 ) (Winston et al. 2014). Hippaliosina imperfecta   is the only species of the genus recorded from Brazil and is also considered endemic to the area (Winston et al. 2014). Other species of Hippaliosina   were already documented in association with organisms such as other bryozoans, molluscs and algae ( Osburn 1952; Shier 1961; Hayward 1974; Winston 1982b, 1986). This is the first record, however, of a Hippaliosina   species associated with the smooth-textured sponges Myrmekioderma   sp. and Desmapsamma anchorata   .

Distribution. Atlantic: endemic to Brazil (Bahia, Espírito Santo and Rio de Janeiro) (Winston et al. 2014).
