Editor's comment The type locality of the species has been considered as "off the West Indies", probably with base on Hartman (1956: 259; see also Hartman, 1959: 280). This is incorrect, as according to Treadwell (1928: 471) the species was collected at "26° 10' north latitude; 56° west longitude, on Sargassum". This is located in the Sargasso Sea, as also stated in Hartman (1956: 281). [details]

Etymology Not stated. The specific epithet lutea is a Latin adjective meaning 'saffron yellow' or 'sallow' and refers certainly to the color of the species: "In the preserving fluid the body often has a yellow color deepening into orange in some regions" (Treadwell, 1928: 470). [details]

Habitat On Sargassum, floating at the surface. [details]
