Distribution map of Paraugaptilus bermudensis by geographical zones
Loc:
Sargasso Sea , off Bermuda: Station ‘’ S’’ (32°10’N, 64°30’W)
N: 2
Lg.:
(302) F: 3-2,75; M: 2,8-2,7; {F: 2,75-3,00; M: 2,70-2,80}
Rem.: epi-bathypelagic. Overall Depth Range in Sargasso Sea: 0-1000 m (Deevey & Brooks, 1977, Station "S");
For Deevey (1973, p.254), this female closely resembles female P. mozambicus in the ventral prolongation on the genital segment, but both sexes of bermudensis differ from the latter species in having longer A1, a relatively longer urosome, hairs or spinules on the dorsal surface of the urosome, and a short curved hook on the last thoracic segment. Also the 3 inner caudal setae of female P. mozambicus are not darkly plumose as in female bermudensis.
