Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy "In the northwestern Atlantic, two allopatric forms may represent distinct species. The southern form (including the type) occurs from the Bahamas and perhaps southern Blake Plateau southward and is included here for comparison. Cirrals are proportionately shorter (LW chiefly 2.0-2.5) and P1 is shorter (3-6 mm) with fewer segments (11-15). The northern form is found from Nova Scotia northward and eastward. Cirrals are proportionately more elongated (LW chiefly 3.0-3.5) and P1 is longer (7-11 mm) with more segments (16-23). The continuum in P1 length and number of segments between the two forms is deceiving; specimens bearing minimum northern P1-values are much smaller than specimens bearing maximum southern P1-values.
We have not separated the two as distinct species because material identified as Trichometra cubensis from the northeastern Atlantic (Clark 1980) spans much of the range of variation found in both. Direct comparison of western and eastern Atlantic material has yet to be made." (Messing & Dearborn, 1990, p. 26) [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Trichometra with cirrals 25-35, fewer than in T. vexator, but about the same in number as in T. delicata; distinguished from the latter by sharp flattening of lateral margins of primibrachial ossicles and prosimal brachials, larger size, and by stouter cirri with cirrals beyond the twelfth about as long as broad. [details]
