Distribution This is a relatively common nominal species, apparently widely distributed, mainly in the tropical regions of the world’s oceans, including the Mediterranean Sea and Red Sea. Historical distribution accounts suggest common occurrence in the Indian Ocean and less common in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans (Fage 1960). However, recent observations along the coast of Florida, the Mesoamerican barrier reef (Belize), and the eastern Panamanian coast found G. milneedwardsi to be a common hyperiid species, especially in the presence of lobate ctenophores. Given their close affiliation with lobate ctenophores it is likely that demographic distributions of G. milneedwardsi fluctuate concomitant with the ephemeral boom and bust population structure associated with its host. [details]

Depth range Fage (1960) provides some information on the biology of G. milneedwardsi, and demonstrated that it occurred most frequently in the top 100 m, was fairly abundant down to 200 m, but very infrequent below that depth. [details]

Distribution This is a relatively common nominal species, apparently widely distributed, mainly in the tropical regions of the world’s oceans, including the Mediterranean Sea and Red Sea. Historical distribution accounts suggest common occurrence in the Indian Ocean and less common in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans (Fage 1960). However, recent observations along the coast of Florida, the Mesoamerican barrier reef (Belize), and the eastern Panamanian coast found G. milneedwardsi to be a common hyperiid species, especially in the presence of lobate ctenophores. Given their close affiliation with lobate ctenophores it is likely that demographic distributions of G. milneedwardsi fluctuate concomitant with the ephemeral boom and bust population structure associated with its host. [details]

Type designation Type material of G. milneedwardsi Bovallius, 1887, consisting of the remains of two male specimens (Fig. 1), is in the NRS (reg. no. 8706 & 8707), as detailed above. It is most likely that the former specimen is the one illustrated by Westergren (Bovallius 1890), and it is here designated the lectotype. The other material, consisting only of male second antennae, becomes paralectotype material. Bovallius (1887, 1890) only provides a general locality, “tropical region of the Atlantic” and mentions that he had both male and female specimens. [details]
