This genus contains two allopatric species. Both are deep-sea cirrates (Which looks really similar to cirroteuthis), and are found in nthe Atlantic. From what I can tell, these two species are both moderately sized. Currently no known common names.

Does it invert itself like vampyroteuthis (I see those little spiky feelers that people think will hurt you when they see vampy turn inside out) or actually hang with its mantle facing the sea floor?
