  1. Abbreviations (habitat): V hydrothermal vent (bare-rock), SV sedimented hydrothermal vent, IV inactive vent, HS hydrothermal seep, S seep, F organic fall. Abbreviations (distributions): EP East Pacific, WP West Pacific, At Atlantic, Ar Arctic, IO Indian Ocean, TOTO Tongue of the Ocean (Bahama Islands), B Basin, M Margin, R Ridge, T Trough. Temperatures are shown as highest and lowest recorded, with A indicating ambient seawater temperature (no temperature anomaly recorded). Other abbreviations: DR Depth range, Temp Temperature, Sed sediment. Substrata are defined in five groups: sediments, hard substratum (rock, bone, wood), bivalves (bathymodiolins, vesicomyids), tubeworms (siboglinids, alvinellids) and crustaceans (bythograeid crabs). A dash (−) indicates missing data or that the species is not recorded from that habitat. A table of all compiled data can be found in Additional file 1. aExact temperature maximum of A. fauchaldi is not available, but it is closely associated with Riftia pachyptila in Guaymas Basin, which is found in temperatures between 14 and 30 °C [6]
