Distribution map of Lucicutia lucida by geographical zones
Loc:
? Namibia, off Mauritania - NW Cape Verde Is., Morocco-Mauritania, Canary Is., off Madeira, Portugal, off W Cape Finisterre, off Bermuda (Station "S"), Sargasso Sea, E, Iceland, off W Ireland, Baie Ibero-moroccan Bay, ? Medit. (NW Basin, Ligurian Sea, Ionian Sea, Adriatic Sea), Indian, Bay of Bengal, Philippines, China Seas (Hong Kong, Taiwan), Japan (Sagami Bay), off British Columbia, off Galapagos, Panama, Chile, New Zealand (off NW North Island)
N: 25
Lg.:
(24) F: 3,5; M: 3,25; (26) M: 3,35; (199) F: 3,65-2,96; M: 3,27-2,96; (909) F: 3,5; {F: 2,96-3,65; M: 2,96-3,50}
Rem.: Bathypelagic. Sargasso Sea: 500-1500 m (Deevey & Brooks, 1977, Station "S");
It is probable that certain identifications, founded on Sars (1925) and Rose (1933 a) modify the above geographic distribution, notably concerning the presence in the Mediterranean Sea (Cf. Lucicutia pera).
