Leocrates atlanticus (McIntosh, 1885) 


Reported by von Marenzeller (1902) from deep waters (808 m) off Milos. Marenzeller's two specimens (Natural History Museum Vienna, Inv. No. 599, Acq. No. 15503) were examined by S. Faulwetter. One specimen was confirmed as Leocrates atlanticus  ; in the second specimen the jaws could not be observed without dissection and its identity is not confirmed.
