Habitat notes
Widespread in warm seas. Exposed in the intertidal zone; dredged from 120 m, on soft bottom of greenish-light brown mud with a few shell fragments and larger particles; dredged from 110 m, on soft bottom of light brown mud with a few shell fragments; dredged from 9-11 m, on soft mud flat, with a few filamentous epiphytes; the low-light ecophene, or "boryana-ecophene", obtained from horizontal surfaces in deep water, in crevices and other shaded habitats in shallow water, on mud flats at ca. 10 m, where water movement presumably occurs, and at 110-120m, where the water is presumably still (Lipkin & Silva 2002). - (23 Jun 2010) - Wendy Guiry
