Species such as Sergestes corniculum, Oplophorus spinosus, Parapandalus richardi, and Systellaspis debilis are generally found above 1000 m and migrate close to the surface at night (Hiller-Adams and Case, 1988; Castes et al., 1994; Institute of Oceanographic Sciences (IOS) Database).
In Sergestes corniculum, because it hangs vertically during normal swimming, the eyeshine pattern is offset by 90[degrees] so that the more reflective posterior region of the eye is directed downwards (Shelton et al., 1992).
