Glyphocrangon longirostris - Holthuis, 1971: 330, St. Croix Basin, Virgin Islands [R/V Pillsbury, sta. 1304, 3 specimens].

Glyphocrangon longirostris – Bullis & Thompson, 1965: 8, Suriname [R/V Oregon, st. 2010, 7°44' N, 54°40' W, 350 fathoms, 640 m].
Distribution/Habitat – ATL; Marine; 1280–2500 m.
Remark – With some doubts because Holthuis (1971: 341) made this comment: "Bullis & Thompson (1965) reported the present species from three stations made by the R/V Oregon,, viz., Nos. 1302, 1908, and 2010. The material of the first of these stations is in the U. S. National Museum and proved to be Glyphocrangon nobilis. The two other lots were not available, but as both came from depths far shallower (350 fm) than those usually producing G. longirostris, there is good reason to doubt the correctness of these identifications also".
