Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Although originally described from tropical of Madagascar (southern hemisphere), most later reports
are from the subtidal zone of the Mediterranean region (plus two recent reports from the Brazilian coast). This
species is probably an intertidal to subtidal species inhabiting sand and detritus, and it has also been reported
from marine cave sediments. [details]
