Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Florometra similar to F. serratissima but with third syzygy at brachials 14+15 (occasionally 12+13 to 16+17). [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Monterey Bay, California, in deep water, N to the Aleutian Islands, southern Bering Sea, Okhotsk Sea, and S to Tsugaru
Strait, Japan. Depth range: 79-1,574 (?1,941) m. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Despite the great overlap in meristics and morphometrics between F. asperrima and F. serratissima recent as yet unpublished sequence data (Eleaume, personal communication) suggests that the two may be distinct. Both are therefore currently accepted. Should they prove conspecific, F. serratissima is the senior name. [details]
