Biology Type of larval development: short planktonic (non-planktotrophic) inferred from prodissoconch morphology (Malchus & Warén, 2005) [details]

Diagnosis Shell up to 15 mm in height, solid, variable in shape from almost circular to obliquely oval, with a straight dorsal margin. Umbo small but prominent, situated in the middle of the hinge line. Ligament small, situated in a triangular resilifer below the umbo. Sculpture of flat comarginal cords, much wider than the interspaces, and fine radial striae, mostly marked in the interspaces of the cords. Hinge plate wide and arched, with 8 anterior and about 9 posterior teeth, both series decreasing in size towards the umbo, where they may even be superimposed in large specimens. Inner margin of valves smooth, beveled to a flat contact surface between valves. Exterior of shell dirty white. Periostracum forming yellowish-brown, hairy projections which are arranged radially, becoming more dense and longer near the margins.  [details]

Distribution Eastern Atlantic, from Iceland and Norway to southern Morocco, also in the Canary Islands and the Azores; Mediterranean. Western Atlantic, from Newfoundland to the Caribbean.
Gorringe, Ampère, Josephine and Seine seamounts, common in 180-545 m; not found in the Meteor group seamounts.
