Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Normally considered to be cosmopolitan in tropical and temperate seas, it is quite probably a complex of species.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet gracilis is a Latin word meaning 'slender' or 'slim', and refers to the body shape of the species.  [details]
