Larvae of Xyrichtys novacula have been collected in the Middle Atlantic Bight hundreds of kilometers north of reported adult ranges. It is suggested that larvae are rapidly transported from south of Cape Hatteras by advection associated with the Gulf Stream and a concomitant cross-slope flow related with the western edge of warm-core rings. -from Authors
