Diagnosis Original diagnosis by Levinsen (1884: 101): ''Gjæller ovale, tilspidsede, kortere end Legemets Bredde, begynde paa fjerde børstebærende Ring og strække sig over de følgende 21—22 Ringe; de tre første Ringe tydelig smallere end de følgende; i Legemets bageste Deel Krogbørster, i hvert Parapodie 1—2, (lyser stærkt i Mørke)'' (= ''branchiae oval, pointed, shorter than the body width, begin in the fourth chaetiger and extend over the following 21-22 segments; the first three segments clearly narrower than the following; in the posterior body region there are chaetae with round tips, 1-2 per fascicle (specimens light strongly in the dark)''; tentative translation by the Editor). [details]

Distribution NE Atlantic: Kattegat. [details]

Etymology The specific epithet fulgens is a Latin adjective meaning 'shining' or 'glittering', and refers to the strong bioluminiscence observed in the species when first captured, which was referred as ''lyser stærkt i Mørke'' (= ''lights up strongly in the dark''; Levinsen, 1884: 101), or as ''Hæc species [...] nocte fulgorem præclarum emittit'' (= ''this species [...] emits outstanding brightness at night''; Levinsen, 1884: 102). [details]

Habitat The species was captured in the water column with a pelagic net during night in August 1883. The specimens were described as being strongly bioluminescent both before and after catch.  [details]

Taxonomy Moved to different genus. [details]

Type locality Hellebaek, Denmark, Kattegat, NE Atlantic Ocean (gazetteer estimate 56.069, 12.564), pelagic, captured during the night. [details]
