Resumen:
During several surveys conducted in shallow, temperate waters of northern Patagonia,we found hydroids belonging to the family Corymorphidae. Additionally,sorting more than 2700 plankton samples yielded five specimens of a corymorphidmedusa. Both stages belong to Corymorpha januarii Steenstrup, 1854, a hydrozoanrarely reported in the literature. This finding extends southwards its geographicdistribution and represents the first Subantarctic record, as well as the first findingof the medusa stage in nature, confirming its endemism in the tropical and temperatewaters of the Southwestern Atlantic.
