Rem.: bathy-abyssopelagic.
For Deevey (1979, p.725) the mature females have the last thoracic segment asymmetrical in dorsal view, the left side longer than right; apical spine of P5 as long as or longer than leg; no outer edge spines on P1.
The presence of this species identified by Harding (1974) in a closing net between 4000-3000 m at the east of Cape Cod (34°13.6'N, 64°29'W) is astonishing.
