*: Body length in lateral aspect.
Rem.: epi- to mesopelagic, (off Malta: 3000 m).
Sampling depth ( sub-Antarct.) : 0-1000 m. Sargasso Sea: 0-1000 m (Deevey & Brooks, 1977, Station "S"). 0-1236 m at Station T-1 (E Tori Is., E middle Japan) from Furuhashi (1966 a).
For Bourne (1889, p.151) this species is rare at Plymouth (only one the 31st August, 1888, the other on April 15th, 1889.
Its distribution and its origin seem comparable to O. media, as noted by Giesbrecht (1892, p. 592).
After Benedetti & al. (2018, p.1, Fig.2) this species belonging to the functional group 5 corresponding to small sac-spawning detritivorous.
