Of these, A. foliacea, H. tener, B. bartletti and G. brevirostris are new records for Brazil. All of the species are widely distributed in the Atlantic and Indo-West Pacific oceans. Gennadas brevirostris is restricted to the Atlantic and Hepomadus tener occurs in the Western Atlantic and Indo-West Pacific oceans. Bentheogennema intermedia is the only species recorded for the Eastern Pacific. The latitudinal distribution among them ranges between 50°N and 40°S.
