Habitat Supralittoral beaches.  [details]

Remark The original description was based on one male and 3 females from Ronde Island and two males and four females from La Digue in the Seychelles. Chevreux (1901) does not give the length of the male he described, but he does say that the largest female (ovigerous and 10 mm in length) was notably larger than the largest male. This leaves the possibility that the males were not completely mature.  [details]
