Material examined: BBB 2016: St. 12; St. 33; St. 34; St. 39.

Distribution: Atlantic species with a wide distributional range in the tropical, sub-tropical and temperate waters; also reported in New Zealand ( Vervoort 1972). In the southwestern Atlantic Ocean the species was previously reported in Argentina from 41°S to 56°S ( Oliveira et al. 2016). Blanco (1994) reported this species (as S. gayi gayi ) at Burdwood bank, 380–400 m depth; consequently this is the first record in MPA Namuncurá I.
