Distribution

Campanularia africana  has previously been reported from Australia ( Watson 1990), Japan ( Stechow 1923; Leloup 1938; Hirohito 1995) and Natal, South Africa (Millard 1975). Its bathymetric distribution extends from the littoral area to a depth of 102 m (Millard 1975; Stechow 1925). Our finding of C. africana  at Vema Seamount represents the first record of this species for the Atlantic Ocean.
