Nymphon australe has a brooding, lecithotrophic larval protonymphon stage that limits dispersal and is not eurybathic. Thus, we are uncertain whether long-distance genetic connectivity is due to glacial activity, the ACC, other currents, the ability to raft on other organisms, or other unknown methods of mobility (Moon et al, 2017).
Species found in both the shelf and bathyal zones were designated eurybathic.
Early stages of embryology and larval development have been reported for a number of bathyal and abyssal invertebrates (Prouho, 1888; Mortensen, 1921; Young and Cameron, 1989; Young and Tyler, 1993; Young et al., 1996b, c), but the complete larval development has been described for only a single eurybathic echinoid, Cidaris cidaris (Prouho, 1888).
