Eurypon lacazei ( Topsent, 1891)   ( Figure 2 View FIGURE 2 )

Material examined. MMF 35057 View Materials / Location: Ponta da Cruz (PC), Madeira island / 6.5 m depth / Date: 4 jul 2001 / Collector: Rosa Pestana.  

Remarks. MMF 3507 has straight and very spiny acanthostyles with irregular bases (78.9‒118.0‒181.5 x 6.6‒8.2‒10.5 µm) and all have a head, occasionally only slightly evident. Subtylostyles (1542.0‒1781.2‒1946.0 x 11.8‒13.8‒15.8 µm) and tornote (343‒343‒343 x 1.7‒1.7‒1.7 µm) are rare. The specimen collected had accumulation of detritus over the body, and some subtylostyles showed specks in their heads, which we were unsure whether they were spines or detritus.
