DISTRIBUTION. — Northern Indian Ocean , Indonesia (Dijkstra & Kastoro 1997: 250), Chesterfield Islands, New Caledonia, Loyalty Islands, Norfolk Island and Kermadec Islands ( Dijkstra 2001: 76); live in 176-660 m. New records for the Solomon Islands, Fiji and Tonga. Present material live in 395-688 m.  

REMARKS. — The present material is similar to the type specimens, although the radial sculpture on the left valve is somewhat weaker with fewer radial riblets in the present material. The present material has a few more internal ribs (12 and usually with 1-3 rudimentary interstitial riblets) than the type specimens (10 with 1 or 2 rudimentary interstitial riblets).
