Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Although this species is known from 13 localities, almost all of them are clustered close together in the
abyssal zone off the coast of Peru in a region covered by manganese nodules. This species was found 0–2 cm
deep in the soft deep-sea sediment. Recently, it was also reported from the subtidal zone off the coast of Brazil;
however, since A. lingua is an abyssal species we think that this record needs confirmation. [details]
