Traustedt, 1883, Sao Thomas; Rocha et al 2012a; Monniot F.: 2016b, and synonymy

Stations: AB 197; 362, 452. AM 05, 20. AR 55, 87, 100, 101, 114, 194, 196, 353. (MNHN S2 MIC 203)

M. anchylodeirus  was recently redescribed from different locations (Monniot F. 2016) and the Madibenthos material does not require more anatomical details except the spinules 0.2mm long figured here ( Fig. 5 View Figure ). Microcosmus multitentaculatus Tokioka, 1953  was established as a junior synonym extending the geographical distribution of M. anchylodeirus  to the Caribbean area, Brazil, Mediterranean Sea Korea and Japan.
