Distribution This species is recorded in Japanese waters from Sagami Bay to the Amami-Oshima Islands; 1– 12 m in depth (present study). Schultz (2005) recorded F. plateia from Queensland, Australia but the figured specimen seems to be F. coffea from the flattened test and the large number of pores of petals (the number of pores of petal III, IV and V are 32, 22 and 32, respectively). In addition, Gomez & Mooi (2015) recorded an unknown species Fibularia n. sp. “bean” from the Philippines and Micronesia that seems to be the same as F. coffea from the flattened test and the large number of pores of petals (the number of pores of petal III, IV and V are 34, 26 and 33, respectively; counted from the sketch image). Therefore, this species is considered to be widely distributed across the Indo-Pacific. [details]

Diagnosis Test outline elliptical when viewed from above; height low; oral surface slightly depressed toward the peristome. Periproct outline round square shaped. Petaloid region large; number of pores of petal III continues to increase with the test growth, reaching over 20 at TL > 5 mm. Diameter of genital pores equal to or smaller than that of petaloid pores in mature individuals. Two hydropores opening in an irregularly-shaped groove. Black pigments on each aboral perradius, forming symmetric pentaradial in living animals. [details]

Distribution This species is recorded in Japanese waters from Sagami Bay to the Amami-Oshima Islands; 1– 12 m in depth (present study). Schultz (2005) recorded F. plateia from Queensland, Australia but the figured specimen seems to be F. coffea from the flattened test and the large number of pores of petals (the number of pores of petal III, IV and V are 32, 22 and 32, respectively).

Therefore, this species is considered to be widely distributed across the Indo-Pacific. [details]
