Material examined

MADEIRA • 1 spec.; 32°41′18.52″ N, 16°58′57.36″ W ( Fig. 1B View Fig ); 2000; Leopoldo Moro leg.; RCCN GoogleMaps   .

Distribution

Atlantic Ocean, between Newfoundland and Ireland (type locality) ( Mertens 1833); Pacific Ocean ( Graff 1892; Woodworth 1894; Plehn 1896); Canary Islands ( De Vera et al. 2009; Cuadrado et al. 2017); Vietnam ( Dawydoff 1952); the North Sea ( Prudhoe 1982); Japan ( Kato 1938); the Mediterranean Sea ( Lang 1879, 1884; Riedl 1959; Marquina et al. 2014); pelagic fauna of the Atlantic Ocean ( Graff 1892; Plehn 1896); Cape Verde and Ascension islands ( Plehn 1896; Laidlaw 1903);

New record

Madeira.

Remarks

Planocera pellucida   , together with Pseudoceros wirtzi   , Pseudoceros cf. maximus   and Prostheceraeus giesbrechtii   are the three polyclad species currently recorded for Madeira. As can be seen in Fig. 7J View Fig . The specimens of Planocera pellucida   from Madeira do not differ molecularly from those captured in the Canary Islands.
