Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDepth range Depths given in the literature range from 0–9120 m (Birstein & Vinogradov 1960), however, as these records represent specimens taken in trawls with no closing mechanism they are highly overestimated. Most records seem to come from bathyal and upper abyssal depths, i.e. approximately 200–3000 m. [details]
