Distribution map of Kunihulsea antarctica by geographical zones
Loc:
Antarct. (E. Weddell Sea: off Vestkapp)
N: 1
Lg.:
(957) F: 0,77-0,82; {F: 0,77-0,82}
Rem.: epibenthic (depth: 1983 m).
Schulz (2004, p.209) points to the large outer spines on exopodal segments of the swimming legs 2 to 3 and the short A1 seems to be indicative of the hyperbenthic nature of the species, contrasting the oceanic bathypelagic mode of life in K. arabica.
