Overall Geographic and Bathymetric Distribution. East of Florida; Gulf of Mexico (NW, NE, SW, SE); Caribbean Sea; from 300 to 867 m depth ( Felder et al. 2009)   .

Distribution in Southwestern and Southeastern Gulf of Mexico. G. longleyi   was collected in: Tamaulipas, off Bravo, San Fernando and Soto La Marina rivers, and off Laguna Madre (WSW); in Veracruz, off the Pánuco and Coatzacoalcos rivers; in Tabasco, in front of Grijalva-Usumacinta rivers (SSW); in Yucatán, off the area of Alacranes reef, and Laguna Rosada; and in Quintana Roo, off Ría Lagartos (SSE); from 671.9 to 1144.0 m depth on clay and shell sediment ( Fig. 9 View FIGURE 9 ).

Remarks. G. longleyi   was the most abundant species of the Glyphocrangonidae   with a total of 602 individuals. The maximum abundance occurred during the summer in the area off Coatzacoalcos and Tonalá rivers, and Veracruz between 359.0 and 443.8 m depth. There was a high ratio of females to males (1.81:1), and the ovigerous females represented 33.5% of the total f number. The male size range was 12.7–27.8 mm CL (mean 21.0±3.068 SD). They exhibited a wide range depth distribution from 293.4 to 711.8 m. Nevertheless, more than 50% of males were found between 506–577 m depth. There were no significant differences of male size among depth strata (F= 1.686, p> 0.1405). Female size range recorded was 12.4 –34.7 mm CL (mean 23.2 ± 4.30 SD). Females were collected in a wide depth range 359.0– 711.8 m. ANOVA test revealed that there was a significant difference in the female mean size between depth intervals 400–499 and 600–699 m (F = 2.4989, p <0.0440). The ovigerous female size ranged from 30.6– 34.0 mm CL (mean 27.2 ± 2.74 SD) at a depth between 359.0 to 711.8 m. ANOVA results showed differences among the shallow and deeper strata (F= 6.9175, p <0.00006) ( Fig. 10a, b, c View FIGURE 10 ). Ovigerous females occurred during spring, summer and autumn and were found in a narrower depth range (800 to 1200 m), compared to the non-ovigerous female’s distribution range that was from 400 to 1200 m depth.
