Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Arabian Sea: very fine gray-green mud, between 110-113 m. Bay of Bengal: gray mud with little sand, and brown mud, at shelf depths.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorMorphology According to Hartman (1976: 217) the specimens from the Bay of Bengal agree with the type specimen from the Arabian Sea in all details except in that they are smaller, and were considered as being probably juveniles. They were also collected at shallower depths than the type specimen.  [details]
