Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorBiology The morphological monograph of Vejdovsky (1882), apparently on S. 'scutata', was based on the species S. thalassemoides Otto according to Sendall & Salazar-Vallejo (2013) [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Noticeably expanding in abundance along the England south coast (Townsend et al. 2006), possibly stemming from assisted introduction to Portland, although natural range expansion is not ruled out. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Neotype locality off coast of Turkey (see Thalassema scutatus for details). Reported global distributions are unlikely to be correct, but are indicative of the accumulated literature occurrences. Sendall & Salazar-Vallejo (2013 advise: "Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel, 9–36 m depth. Deeper water records from the Eastern Mediterranean (Ben-Eliahu and Fiege 1995) deserve a careful comparison to define if they are conspecific with the shallow water material. Some records from non-Mediterranean or Northeastern Atlantic localities might belong to other, probably undescribed species." [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat As currently understood probably shallow water only. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Sternaspis scutata is the oldest named species in the genus. [details]
