Southern Hemisphere: South Africa, off Durban and Discovery Seamount, off Tasmania and off New Zealand. Specimens were all collected from the southern hemisphere, from the southern Indian Ocean off the coast of Africa as well as from the South Pacific off the coasts of Tasmania and New Zealand. The holotype was collected in the South Atlantic (Trunov et al., 2006) (Ref. 87954).
