Schneider & Searles (1991: 463) notes: “A planktonic bloom of this species was observed during the spring and summer of 1988, with large quantities washing ashore and into the sounds between Cape Lookout [North Carolina, U.S.A.] and Myrtle Beach [South Carolina, U.S.A.].” Kapraun & Searles noted that the bloom coincided with unseasonably cool surface water temperatures in the area which remained below normal into June.
