Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution NE Atlantic: Kattegat. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology 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]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat 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]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Moved to different genus. [details]
