The Bathysphaera Intacta is one of Beebe's Abyssal Fishes, reported from North Atlantic Ocean. Length, 6 feet. Has a row of strong, pale-blue lights along its side. Two ventrical tentacles, each tipped with a pair of red and blue lights. Observed only once at 2,100 feet by William Beebe in a bathysphere off Bermuda on November 22, 1932.Possible explanation: Beebe classified it with the Scaleless black dragonfishes (Subfamily Melanostomiidae), but he admitted this was a guess and that the largest known dragonfish was only 15 inches long.
