From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution This species was originally described from deep water (more than 400 m bsl), but later reported from
intertidal and subtidal zones (less than 40 m bsl) of the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean basin. In our
opinion, these shallow subtidal records require confirmation. [details]
