Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution 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]
