Type locality. Sow and Pigs Reef, Port Jackson, New South Wales, Australia (33°30′S 151°16′E). GoogleMaps  

Material examined. New South Wales: male, dissected, 8.0 mm, 4 slides, east of Bermagui, (36°26′S 150°14′6″E), AM P. 92234, 120m, benthic sled, 5 September 1994, coll. P. Berents (SS05/94/155). GoogleMaps  

Remarks. In the material from Bermagui, New South Wales (AM P.92234), the telson   is longer than broad unlike the specimen figured by Lowry & Springthorpe (2005) which is broader than long. The antennae 1 article is also variable in the number of robust setae along the posterior margin, the right peduncle has three evenly spaced setae while the left has only two distal robust setae, which differs from the Lowry & Springthorpe (2005) material which has one proximal and one distal robust setae. These differences are considered intraspecific variation.

Distribution. New South Wales: Port Jackson; Bermagui ( Haswell 1879b; Lowry & Springthorpe 2005; current study).
