Distribución Países | Áreas FAO | Ecosistemas | Ocurrencias, apariciones | Point map | Introducciones | Faunafri

Southwest Atlantic, and Northeast Atlantic to eastern Indian Ocean: confined to warm-temperate or tropical waters, yet apparently antitropical. Eastern Atlantic: Portugal, the Azores and Madeira to Sierra Leone and westwards to 50°W, and from Angola to South Africa. Western Atlantic: Brazil to Uruguay.

Espinas dorsales (total): 0; Espinas anales 0. Dorsal soft rays + finlets = 14-16; Anal soft rays + finlets = 17-20.

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)
