Distribution map of Parundinella emarginata by geographical zones
off Woods Hole, W Canary Is., Namibia.

Type locality: 39°45.2'N, 70°33.8'W.
N: 3
(200) M: 0,86; 0,84; (213) F: 0,86; {F: 0,86; M: 0,84-0,86}
Rem.: hyperbenthic. (1750-1822 m).
The species is closely related to P. manicula. Grice (1972, p.240) points to the male described could actually be the undescribed male of P. manicula Fleminger, 1957.
