Distribution map of Urocopia singularis by geographical zones
Loc:
S off Iceland, Baltic Sea, off Oregon, Bering Sea
N: 4
Lg.:
(208) F: 2,1; (712) F: 2,28; 2,25; M: 1,29; 1,05; (713) F: 1,9; {F: 1,90-2,28; M: 1,05-1,29}
Rem.: sampled by Heron & Damkaer (1986, p.141) between 4.310-0 m.
Humes & Stock (1973, p.329) noted that Sars had mistakenly regarded the terminal claw as a 5th segment when he described A2 of Urocopia singularis.
