Distribution Specimens examined were collected in the Weddell Sea and in the north of the Argentinian basin, between 3076–4693 m. DNA sequences of GenBank suggests that the species is also widely distributed in the North Atlantic and the North Pacific (Havermans et al. 2013) and can descend down to 5117 m depth.

Etymology Maldoror, ghastly character of the tale ‘Les Chants de Maldoror’ by Lautréamont, nom de plume of Isidore Lucien Ducasse (French poet born in Uruguay, 04.04.1846–24.11.1870). Maldoror is a phonetic transposition of ‘mal d’aurore’, which can be translated as ‘pain of the dawn’ or even 'pain caused by the glow of dawn'. This name has been coined bearing in mind that this species thrives at great depths where sunlight is absent. The name is a noun in apposition. [details]

DNA sequences of GenBank suggests that the species is also widely distributed in the North Atlantic and the North Pacific (Havermans et al. 2013) and can descend down to 5117 m depth.
