Stylopoma aurantiacum Canu & Bassler, 1928a  

( Figs. 54–59 View FIGURES 54 – 59 )

Stylopoma aurantiacum Canu & Bassler, 1928a: 78   , pl. 4, figs. 3, 4; Vieira et al. 2008: 28; Winston et al. 2014: 204, fig. 41.

Material examined. UFBA 1587, UFBA 2394, Camamu Bay, 13°53’S, 38°59’W, 18–20 m, coll GoogleMaps   . October 2012 (on sponge Haliclona (Soestella) melana   ); UFBA 1182, Camamu Bay , 13°53’S, 38°59’W, 18–20 m, coll GoogleMaps   . October 2012 (one colony on sponge Ircinia felix   ).

Remarks. Stylopoma aurantiacum   has encrusting colonies ( Fig. 54 View FIGURES 54 – 59 ), a keyhole-shaped orifice with distinct condyles, frontal avicularia rounded proximally and subtriangular distally ( Fig. 56 View FIGURES 54 – 59 ), large shoe-shaped interzooidal avicularia ( Fig. 58 View FIGURES 54 – 59 ) and large ooecia with crab claw-like extensions from either side of the base of the opening ( Fig. 59 View FIGURES 54 – 59 ) ( Canu & Bassler 1928a; Winston et al. 2014). Winston et al. (2014) first reported S. aurantiacum   since its original description, but here we first figure ooecia of S. auratiacum   ( Fig. 59 View FIGURES 54 – 59 ). We found two colonies attached to the sponges Haliclona (Soestella) melana   and Ircinia felix   . The widely known Stylopoma spongites ( Pallas, 1766)   received its name owing to its association with a sponge (Tilbrook 2001), suggesting Stylopoma   species might be common on that substratum.

Distribution. Atlantic: endemic to Brazil (Pernambuco and Bahia) (Winston et al. 2014).
