From editor or global species database
Editor's comment Chamberlin (1960) referred to Stigmatogaster dimidiata angusta Latzel, 1896 as "a form of known littoral habits" but there is no other traceable reference to halophilous habits in this terrestrial species which occurs up to 400-450m and Crabill, quoted in Roth & Brown (1976) regards the listing of this as halophilous as questionable. [details]

Habitat This species is either supralittoral or can be found in the intertidal zone but does not live there naturally.
