Distribution. South China Sea, near Vietnam, and East China Sea, near Taiwan, 170– 760 m.

Remarks. An intermediate valve of a specimen from Suruga Bay, illustrated by Saito

(1997, fig. 13) and identified as Lepidozona reevei Kaas & Van Belle 1987  is very similar to the valves of L. acostata  and may belong to it ( Sirenko 2016b). In this case this species inhabits the Suruga Bay, like several representatives of the genera Leptochiton  , Hanleyella  , Nierstraszella  and Notoplax  found both, in Suruga Bay and in Taiwan.
