Abstract

Kishinouyea corbini Larson, 1980 is recorded from Santa Cruz, Espirito Santo State, southeastern Brazil. This is the first record of the order Stauromedusae from Brazil, and also from the tropical Southern Hemisphere. Kishinouyea corbini has been known only from two localities in Puerto Rico, and this new record constitutes a great southward extension of the known range of the species. This is also the first report of the species since its original description, so a description of the Brazilian specimens and a comparison with the type material are given. Records of Stauromedusae in the Southern Hemisphere are briefly reviewed.
