Distribution patterns of Chilean shallow-water sea anemones (Cnidaria: Anthozoa: Actiniaria, Corallimorpharia); with a discussion of the taxonomic and zoogeographic relationships between the actinofauna of the South East Pacific, the South West Atlantic and the Antarctic

Abstract: The first complete zoogeographical analysis of Chilean shallow water sea anemones (Actiniaria and Corallimorpharia) and their taxonomic relations with neighbouring faunas is provided, based on extensive recent sampling in combination with a literature review. Between 1994 and 2004, we collected more than 1000 specimens of 32 distinct species of Actiniaria and Corallimorpharia at more than 100 sites along the Chilean coast between Arica (18°30'S; 70°19'W) and the Straits of Magellan (53°36'S 70°56'W).

“…Lee et al (2008) referred to a Peruvian/Chilean Province extending to around 40°S, an intermediate zone from 40°to 43°S, and the beginning of the cold-temperate waters at 43º S. Marine fishes of southern Chile also show three latitudinal fish zones but they are located farther south by Sielfeld & Vargas (1999). These authors indicated that species belonging to typical warm-temperate families (Blenniidae, Clinidae, Normanichthyidae) extended as far as 45°-46°S, concordant with the faunal barrier for sea anemones (Haussermann & Forsterra, 2005). Briggs (1995) designated Chiloe Island (41.5°S) as the southern limit of the province, but the Taitao Peninsula now seems to be more appropriate.…”

“…Notably, the molluscs of the Chilean coast do not demonstrate a reduction in species diversity at higher latitudes, but rather a sharp increase in diversity above 42°S (Valdovinos et al, 2003). In their review of invertebrate zoogeographic patterns in the Magellan Province, Haussermann & Forsterra (2005) noted that the polychaetes and anemones indicated a barrier between the Pacific and Atlantic sections because those faunas showed very little overlap. Although Boschi & Gavio (2005) recognized a single Magellan Province for the decapod crustaceans, their data indicate about 35% endemism for the Pacific side and about 18% for the Atlantic.…”

“…Zoogeographically the Chilean fjord region can be subdivided in the NPZ from Puerto Montt at 42° S to the Golfo de Penas at 47° S, the CPZ from Golfo de Penas to the Straits of Magellan at 53° S, and the Southern Patagonian Zone (SPZ) from the Straits of Magellan to Cape Horn (see Pickard 1973;Viviani 1979; Stuardo & Valdovinos 1992; Häussermann & Försterra 2005). In the present study only fjords in the NPZ and CPZ were examined in detail, with the latter being strongly influenced by sediment‐rich freshwater from the large inland icefields (Pickard 1973).…”

“…Many areas in the fjords and channels of the NPZ are characterized by a high productivity: high values of 5 to more than 10 mg·m −3 chlorophyll a have been measured during summer months (Intesal Chile), resulting in invertebrate communities with high biomass and turnover rates (V. Häussermann & G. Försterra, personal observations in fjord Comau). Additionally, deep‐water emergence is a phenomenon regularly observed in the Chilean fjords (Försterra & Häussermann 2003; Häussermann & Försterra 2005) and is a common feature of fjords throughout the Pacific (Brattegard 1980; Pickard & Stanton 1980). These special water conditions may account for the high concentrations of M. venosa and other sessile suspension feeders in the fjords examined.…”

“…Contudo os dados do trabalho apenas são distintivos para os dois primeiros níveis hierárquicos; para o nível específico existe sobreposição de medidas, e dessa forma percebe-se uma inconsistência. Häussermann & Försterra (2005) reportam que 29% das espécies de Corallimorpharia e Actiniaria com ocorrência para a costa chilena podem ter sua área de abrangência em regiões do sul do Oceano Atlântico, onde correntes vindas do Pacífico seguem em direção ao Sul da Patagônia Argentina (através da passagem de Drake) (Acha et al, 2004). Este fenômeno é relatado para algumas espécies planctônicas (e.g.…”
