Paralycaea hoylei Stebbing, 1888  

Paralycaea hoylei Stebbing, 1888: 1570   ; Siegel-Causey, 1982: 283; Vinogradov et al., 1996: 466 (in synonymy of P. gracilis   ); Gasca, 2009: 88 (tab. 1); Gasca et al., 2012: 126 (passim) (tab. 1); Zeidler, 2016: 36, 39 (key).

Material examined. 1M from one station ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 ). TALUD III, St. 25A2 (25°50’54”N, 109°56’54”W), August 21, 1991, 1M, I-K from surface to 230 m (TD, ca. 1400 m) (ICML-EMU-12888) GoogleMaps   .

Distribution. Atlantic, off Africa (type locality), in surface waters ( Stebbing, 1888). Central and southern Gulf of California ( Siegel-Causey 1982, present study). Registered as “uncommon” in tropical Australian waters ( Zeidler 1998). Registered as one of the most common species along the west coast of Mexico under the influence of El Niño ( Gasca et al. 2012). Its true distribution remains largely unknown because of the taxonomic problems related to this species.

Remarks. Paralycaea hoylei   is now included in the family Amphithyridae ( Zeidler 2016)   . Vinogradov et al. (1996) recognized only one valid species of Paralycaea   , P. gracilis   , thus considering both P. hoylei   and P. newtoniana Bovallius, 1887   as junior synonyms of Stebbing’ species. Zeidler (1998: 85), however, established the validity of P. hoylei   based on material collected in Australian waters. The status of P. newtoniana   was further discussed by Zeidler (2016) (see comments in discussion).
