MATERIAL EXAMINED. — Type material from Réunion probably lost (not in MNHN).

Tuamotu Archipelago. Tarasoc, stn DW 3363, 16˚10’S, 146˚23’W, 490-560 m, 1rv; stn DW 3370, 15˚39’S, 146˚52’W, 315-340 m, 1 lv; stn DW 3378, 15˚38’S, 146˚51’W, 887-890 m, 1 lv; stn DW 3382, 15˚40’S, 146˚54’W, 285-286 m, 1 rv.

DISTRIBUTION. — Mozambique, eastern South Africa, Malagasy, Réunion, Thailand, southern Japan, China, Philippines, Indonesia, northwestern Australia, Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia, Fiji Islands, Line Islands, Society Islands, Tuamotu Archipelago, and Austral Islands ( Dijkstra 1991: 45; 1998a: 21; Dijkstra & Kilburn 2001: 280; Dijkstra & Maestrati 2010: 353; MNHN, coll. HD, unpubl. data). Living depth range 18-120 m (unpubl. data, coll. HD). The present post-mortem valves have been scattered to bathyal depths (285-890 m).

REMARKS

The present single valves are morphologically indistinguishable from recent material housed in the MNHN and ZMA from Réunion (type locality).
