Distribution map of Euaugaptilus sarsi by geographical zones
E Canary Is., Sargasso Sea (off E Cape Cod)
N: 3
(226) F: 3,26; {F: 3,26}
Rem.: meso-bathypelagic. Recorded in a vertical haul from 1000 to 500 m (Matthews, 1972). In vertical tow 4000-3000 m (Harding, 1974).
The species resembles E. maxillaris Sars (1924), but is easily distinguished from it.

In ''squamatus" Group after Matthews (1972, p.64) {See remarks in Euaugaptilus genus}.
