Distribution map of Lucicutia pallida by geographical zones
W Indian, Sargasso Sea: off Bermuda (Station "S"))
N: 3
(21) M: 8,3-7,7; {M: 7,70-8,30}
Rem.: bathypelagic. Sargasso Sea: 1000-1500 m (Deevey & Brooks, 1977, Station "S");
For Hülsemann (1966, p.733) this species differs fro L. bella and L. formosa by the shorter A1 and furca, and by the structure of P5 male.
