Distribution map of Epicalymma brittoni by geographical zones
Loc:
Arct., Norwegian Sea
N: 1
Lg.:
(675) F: 0,68-0,54; {F: 0,54-0,68}
Rem.: bathypelagic.
For Heron & al. (1984, p.483), a shorter seta reptrsenting P5 and the more widely rounded process which arises on the swimming P1-P4 basis, between the endopod and exopod, distinguishes E. brittoni from the other Epicalymma species. Collected below 500 m.
