An obscure species of the large leptolid genus Sertularia, S. notabilis Fraser, 1947, originally described from Tortuga Island, Venezuela, and not recorded since, is re-described and recorded from Brazilian coastal waters. This material is compared with Fraser’s type series; its relationship with Sertularia hattori Leloup, 1940, from Japanese and Korean waters, is discussed and possible conspecificity evaluated.
