Distribution Neotype locality off coast of Turkey (see Thalassema scutatus for details). Reported global distributions are unlikely to be correct, but are indicative of the accumulated literature occurrences. Sendall & Salazar-Vallejo (2013 advise: "Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel, 9–36 m depth. Deeper water records from the Eastern Mediterranean (Ben-Eliahu and Fiege 1995) deserve a careful comparison to define if they are conspecific with the shallow water material. Some records from non-Mediterranean or Northeastern Atlantic localities might belong to other, probably undescribed species." [details]

Authority For an explanation of the authorship as Ranzani see Petersen (2000), also Muir & Petersen (2013), also see editor comments under Echinorinchus scutatus Renier, [1804 unpublished] and under Thalassema scutatus Ranzani, 1817. [details]

Biology The morphological monograph of Vejdovsky (1882), apparently on S. 'scutata', was based on the species S. thalassemoides Otto according to Sendall & Salazar-Vallejo (2013) [details]

Distribution Neotype locality off coast of Turkey (see Thalassema scutatus for details). Reported global distributions are unlikely to be correct, but are indicative of the accumulated literature occurrences. Sendall & Salazar-Vallejo (2013 advise: "Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel, 9–36 m depth. Deeper water records from the Eastern Mediterranean (Ben-Eliahu and Fiege 1995) deserve a careful comparison to define if they are conspecific with the shallow water material. Some records from non-Mediterranean or Northeastern Atlantic localities might belong to other, probably undescribed species." [details]

Distribution Noticeably expanding in abundance along the England south coast (Townsend et al. 2006), possibly stemming from assisted introduction to Portland, although natural range expansion is not ruled out. [details]

Habitat As currently understood probably shallow water only. [details]

Taxonomy Sternaspis scutata is the oldest named species in the genus. [details]
