Distinguishing features

Distinguishing features still need to be specified.


  • Size data has not been obtained.

Depth range

  • Depth range data is not yet available.



It is unlikely that this species occurs at Lizard Island despite the record by Caley (1991). There are no records of it on the east coast of Australia in Atlas of Living Australia (accessed 19 Jan 2019) and Allen and Erdmann (2012) do not list Australia within its distribution.
