Rem.: Bathypelagic (epipelagic in A. Scott, 1909; meso-bathypelagic in Roe, 1972; 1984). Sargasso Sea: 500-2000 m (Deevey & Brooks, 1977, Station "S") 369-1236 m at Station T-1 (E Tori Is., E Japan).
As a consequence of the synonymies, the correct geographic distribution of this species is difficult to establish.
For Hülsemann (1966, p.723) the description of the species Sars described (1920, 1925) under the name L. simulans appears to be identical with that of L. longiserrata (Giesbrecht, 1888). Sars' (1925) identification of L. curta as L. longiserrata was corrected by Tanaka (1963). Possibly the specimens reported by Mazza (1962) as L. longiserrata are also L. curta; unfortunately, the illustrations are inconclusive.
After Lapernat & Razouls (2002, p.19) the Itoh's index value = 577.7 (number of teeth: 11).
The synonymy between L. simulans and L. longiserrata is not admitted by Walter & Boxshall (2011) in the World Copepoda database.
