Further identification of this juvenile specimen is necessary. If it is L. furcifer,
its collection at the Charleston Bump is a major southern range extension,
as the species has been found on the east coast of N. America south to
41 degrees N and between Scotland and Norway. Alternatively, if it is L. verrilli,
the Bump is a northern range extension from Florida.
