Distribution of the Pontella alata group.
Arabic numerals show the number of individual tows containing one or more individuals of the species taken in the vicinity of the new record indicated by the symbol.
Loc:
Java (Jakarta Bay, Surabaya), N Celebes, Philippines (NE Mindanao), N New Guinea, S Korea, ? Japan (Tanabe Bay) (in Yamazi, 1958); NE Australia (Great Barrier Reef).

Type locality: northeastern Mindanao (Philippines).
N: 7
Lg.:
(137) F: 3,6; (900) M: 2,93; (1087) F: 3,2-3,25; M: 2,95; (1126) F: 3,20-3,25; M: 2,93-3,00; {F: 3,20-3,60; M: 2,93-3,00}
Rem.: epiplanktonic.Netitic-oceanic.
The male described by C.B. Wilson as P. surrecta male is synonym of Ivellopsis elephas (Brady, 1883).
For Ohtsuka & al. (1987, p.560) the species resembles P. rostraticauda; female appendages of both species are almost the same except for P5. The most conspicuous difference is in the morphology of the urosome.
This species belongs to "P. alata"-Group (See in P. alata in Mulyadi, 2003, Table I; 2011, p.1529)
