Ecology and distribution. Amphilepis ingolfiana   is a deep-sea species (957–4829 m) known to occur in the NE Atlantic from the Rockall Trough south to off North Africa ( Paterson 1985). In the Gulf of Cadiz it was collected at the Moroccan margin in four mud volcanoes and in the Pen Duick Escarpment, often associated with carbonate crusts and at shallower depths (353–975 m) than previously reported ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 F).
