Chart of 1996
Loc:
New Zealand, Cape Farewell-South Taranaki Bight, off S New Zealand, ? sub-Antarct. (SW Pacif., SW Indian: in Tanaka, 1964), Medit. (Toulon harbour (in Rossi, 2008; S Adriatic (Belmonte, 2018)), W Egyptian coast in Zakaria & al. (2016)
N: 6 (sub-Antarct.: 1; Pacif. SW: 5; ? Medit. 2)
Lg.:
(35) F: 1,71-1,54; M: 1,44; (116) F: 2,05-1,25; M: 1,85-1,25; (118) F: 1,84-1,43; M: 1,55-1,34; {F: 1,25-2,05; M: 1,25-1,85}
Rem.: epipelagic, littoral.
Sampling depth (sub-Antarct.) : 0-10 m.
Bradford (1978 a) estimates that this coastal form is confined exclusively to New Zealand.
Tanaka (1964, p.8) observes a male (Lg: 1,59 mm) of this species south of Marion Island (sub-Antarctic).
See remark in Centropages typicus. A genetic analysis would be necessary concerning these two forms.
