Description

15cm long arm fragments of a Freyellidae   recovered from ROV biobox. Identified by DNA and morphological examination (Fig. 10). Morphological identification suggests Freyastera benthophila   detailed in Sladen 1889).

Genetic data for this taxa with new GenBank accession numbers are provided in Table 2

Diagnosis

Forms a unique monophyletic clade distinct from other AB01 specimens (Fig. 5). The speciemens differs significantly in sequence identity to the published 16S sequence of Freyastera benthophila   on GenBank accession EU722993 (K2P = 0,064). The type locality of Freyastera benthophila   is in South Pacific (39°41'S; 131°23'W, 4663m depth).
