Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Gorringe and Josephine seamounts, endemic, rare in 265-1040 m.
This species constitutes with Alvania microstriata Hoenselaar and Goud, 1998 and A. seinensis Gofas, 2007 a group which seems restricted to the Lusitanian seamounts and Madeira, and does not resemble closely any of the European mainland species. The few specimens from Josephine have more ribs than those from Gorringe. [details]
