The locality records given by C.B. Wilson (1950, p.250) for the Pacific are not included, as well as those from Marukawa (1921, p.8) to be confirmed for the NW Pacific. This species seems to be reported only by Wilson (1932) on the eastern coast of the USA where its presence is exceptional (it is not transferred to the matrix)
