Rem.: In estuaries, mangroves.
The form, pointed out in Vietnam by Rose (1956) makes confirmation necessary.
The distribution of this form is different from the species of the sub-genus that are all W Indo-Pacific.
After Björnberg (1963, p.62) this species is indicator of coastal waters.
Bowman (1965, p.149 and further) notes that the specimens female and male from both localities in Santa Lucia Island (Marigot Bay) differ all the others in ne respect, the rostral filaments are completely absent; all other specimens both Atlantic and Pacific, have well developed rostral filaments. The arostrate condition of the St. Lucia population in marigot Bay is probably genetically rather than environmentally determined, because the population has been isolated from adjacent rostrate populations long enough for the arostrate condition to become completely established.
