Fig. 45. Plots of the total length of 5 species of leptocephali at each station of a sampling survey in late September and early October of 1984 in the southwest Sargasso Sea, showing two general patterns of larval distributions: 1) widespread distributions at all stations (Moringua edwardsi–Moringuidae, Ariosoma balearicum–Congridae, Chlorhinus suensoni–Chlopsidae); 2) restricted distribution at Station 12 in the Northwest Providence and Stations 1 and 2 in the Florida Current (Myrophis platyrhynchus–Ophichthidae, Heteroconger halis–Congridae–garden eel). The stations shown in the upper left panel correspond to the stations along the x-axis of the plots. The red square (upper left panel) shows the study site in Fig. 60.
