Type locality off Kerguelen, station 149, "dredged at and near" lat. -49.1333, long. 70.2°, between 10-100 fathoms (18-183 m). McIntosh gives the geolocation on p.xxi as 49° 8' S, 70° 12' E. This plots today as near shore in a Kerguelen Island bay, although this may be coincidental given the accuracy possible at the time. This geolocation may assumed to be the starting point for the dredge track [details]
Depth range 18-183 m (10-100 fathoms).
