Abstract: A hydrozoan of the genus Cladonema, new to the American
west coast, is described from specimens taken from a display tank on the
Berkeley campus of the University of California. Observations of its life history
revealed it to be synonymous with Cladonema uchidai Hirai, 1958, known and
described from northern Japan, although its distribution is probably much wider
and includes coastal China and the USSR. The species is presumed to be present
in San Francisco Bay, a point of introduction for many exotic species, although
it is not yet known from the field.
