Vereshchaka, 2009 (Galathea Report 22:7-140) regards this species as being restricted to the Atlantic Ocean - records from outside of this region, including any from Australia, New Zealand, and surrounding areas, need to be re-examined to determine their true identity, as it is highly likely that they are mis-identifications of other species. This code replaces previous (interim) CAAB code 00 905283 (FISHLIST 905283).
