The sea anemone Cataphellia brodricii (GOSSE, 1859) is reported for the first time from France (Roscoff area). The known area of distribution of the species is given and the habitat in Roscoff is described. A survey of the nematocysts of Cataphellia brodricii, Hormathia coronata (GOSSE, 1858) and Paraphellia expansa (HADDON, 1886) proved that the cnidom of these 3 species shows small, but distinct differences. No difference was noticed between the cnidoms of Atlantic and Mediterranean specimens of Hormathia coronata. Penicilli A1, so far not known to occur in Hormathiidae, were found in the stomodaeum of Cataphellia brodricii and Hormathia coronata. The phenomenon of so-called dart formation noticed in the penicilli B1 of the filaments of these two species is discussed.
