Distribution map of Sapphirina pyrosomatis by geographical zones
Loc:
South Africa (W), Patagonia (in C. B. Wilson, 1950), G. of Guinea (off Lagos), off NW Cape Verde Is., off Canary Is., off Azores, off S Nantucket, Medit. (Ligurian Sea, Napoli, Strait of Messina, N-S Adriatic Sea), NW Indian, Japan, SE Pacif., off Chile
N: 12
Lg.:
(45) F: 2,25-2; M: 2,15-1,75; (46) F: 2,25-2; M: 2,15-1,8; (705) F: 1,791; 1,603; M: 1,471; {F: 1,603-2,250; M: 1,471-2,150}
Rem.: If one admits the variations established by Lehnhofer (1929, p.289), this species would be a synonym of Sapphirina auronitens-sinuicauda. Boxshall & Halsey (2004, p.653) have the opinion that this species should be considered as a synonym of Sapphirina auronitens.
