Range Description

The type locality of Megalocranchia maxima is the Cape of Good Hope. Its range is reported as extending from Madagascar to the western South Atlantic (Roper and Jereb 2010). Reports from Japanese waters (Okutani 2005, reported in Roper and Jereb 2010) are likely a different species as they make little biogeographic sense.
