Published via the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Antarctic study Series.

The distribution of Siphonophora of the Antarctic, Subantarctic, and adjoining areas of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans is defined. Specimens for this learn have been acquired through the usa Antarctic study application from USNS Eltanin cruises 3-5, 8-23, 25-28, 35, and 38 in the course of spring, summer time, fall, and wintry weather. Samples have been accumulated from 1962 to 1969, utilizing open-closing and nonclosing plankton nets. details is compiled on horizontal distributions of siphonophores within the South Atlantic Ocean west of 0°. Illustrations of the species, and maps of distribution on the 3 bathymetric degrees, also are incorporated. additionally, info on Eltanin cruise 30 are offered, overlaying quite often the Pacific tropical zone through the summer season, with a few stations under the equator (austral winter). Vertical distributions of every species are mentioned for the 3 bathymetric zones: epipelagic (200-0 m), mesopelagic (1000-200 m), and bathypelagic (below a thousand m). existence levels and seasonal differences also are thought of. 80 species of Siphonophora have been pointed out in those collections. between those, and defined in different places, have been 5 new species: Lensia eltanin, L. eugenioi, L. landrumae, Heteropyramis alcala, and Thalassophyes ferrarii. The eudoxid phases of L. lelouveteau and L. reticulata have been additionally came upon. furthermore, the next infrequent Siphonophora species have been accumulated: Halistemma cupulifera, Desmophyes annectens, Lilyopsis rosea, Eudoxia macra, Lensia achilles, L. baryi, L. exeter, L. grimaldii, L. hostile, Nectocarmen antonioi, and Clausophyes galeata. the commonest species of the Antarctic?]Subantarctic sector through the 4 seasons was once Dimophyes arctica. The eudoxid levels of Chelophyes appendiculata, Diphyes dispar, Diphyopsis mitra, Clausophyes ovata, and Heteropyramis maculata have been ample.
