Syntype According to Chambers and Muir (1997:171 the only syntype is from 53 15' N, 11 51' W (53.25° -11.85°) off Galway. They don't mention the Portugal location that McIntosh included (without making clear if he had the specimen from there in front of him). The syntype examined by Chambers & Muir is unidentifiable. [details]
