Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Occurs at bathyal depths. Salazar-Vallejo et al. (2007: 476) state that "It might be a pelagic polychaete, but there is no unequivocal evidence for this; however, there are other polychaete genera that are pelagic (like Buskiella McIntosh, 1885), but were originally regarded as benthic forms.[details]
