Peniagone horrifer Théel, 1882 was collected at abyssal depths from around the Crozet Islands in the southern Indian Ocean on RRS Discovery Cruise 300 in 2005. Previously known from only one specimen, P. horrifer is re-described based on a large haul of preserved material and an in situ photograph of the species on the seabed.
