Uroptychus nitidus (A. Milne Edwards, 1880)

Diptychus nitidus A. Milne Edwards, 1880: 62 (part) (West Indies from NW of Cuba, Frederickstadt, Santa Cruz, St Kitts, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St Lucia, St Vincent, Cariacou, Grenada, and Barbados, 161–1343 m).

Uroptychus nitidus . — Henderson, 1888: 174, pl. 21, figs 6, 2a (West Indies: off Sombrero Island and off Culebra Island, 714–824 m). — Schmitt, 1935: 182 (key).

Uroptychus nitidus (typical form). — Chace, 1942: 11, fig. 3 (N coast of Cuba, NW of Dry Tortugas (Fla.), off Cayo Lobos (Campeche), off St Croix, off Guadeloupe, off Dominica, off Martinique, off St Lucia, off St Vincent, 163–1358 m). — Pequegnat & Pequegnat, 1970: 159, fig. 5-15 (NW and SW Gulf of Mexico, 778–1318 m).

Type data: syntypes, MCZ .

Type localities: West Indies from NW of Cuba, Frederickstadt , Santa Cruz , St Kitts , Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St Lucia , St Vincent, Cariacou, Grenada, and Barbados, 161–1343 m. [restriction of the type locality depends on designation of a lectotype] .

Identity questionable:

Uroptychus nitidus occidentalis . — Balss, 1913b: 27 (Sagami Bay, 730 m). — Parisi, 1917: 3 (Sagami Bay). — Yokoya, 1933: 67 (Tosa Bay, Suruga Bay, Kurose Bank near Hachijo, E of Kagoshima, E of Ashizurizaki, W of Muroto-zaki, W of Tanabe, Kii Strait, near Shio-misaki, SE of Toba (Mie), S of Atsumi, S of Hamana Lake, 91–609 m). — Baba, 1973: 120, fig. 2, pl. 4, fig. 1 (Sagami Bay).

Uroptychus nitidus (variety A). — Chace, 1942: 14, fig. 4 (N coast of Cuba, and E of St Augustine (Fla.), 666–925 m). — Pequegnat & Pequegnat, 1970: 159, fig. 5-15 (NW and SW Gulf of Mexico, 778–1318 m) [separate species, K. Baba, unpublished].

Uroptychus nitidus (variety B). — Chace, 1942: 15, fig. 5 (N coast of Cuba, 463–740 m) [separate species, K. Baba pers. comm.].

Uroptychus nitidus (variety C). — Chace, 1942: 17, fig. 6 (N coast of Cuba, 268–444 m).

Uroptychus nitidus . — Kensley, 1977: 167, fig. 4 (off NE South Africa, 560–1200 m). — Kensley, 1981a: 34 (list). [Not U. nitidus (A. Milne Edwards, 1880) ]

Uroptychus nitidus . — Barnard, 1950: 495, figs 92g –i (off Cove Rock (East London), 146 m). Because the specimens reported by Kensley (1977) from off Durban represent a new species, Barnard's specimens need to be reexamined (Baba, unpublished).

Uroptychus nitidus . — Alcock & Anderson, 1894: 173 ( Laccadive Sea, 1160 m). — Anderson, 1896: 101 ( Investigator stn 201, 586–542 m).
