Environment marine
Note 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Ledoyer (1978) only had a male so sexual dimorphism of gnathopod 2 is not known. Ledoyer did not illustrate the body shape, coxa 4, epimeron 2 or the pleosome/urosome, all characters which would help place this taxon into the eriopisids or the melitids. Because of the head shape and the body size I am placing it in the eriopiselline group. [details]
