Ecology

Habitat

The WALVIS specimen was collected among actiniarians, gorgonians, polychaetes, gastropods, and macrurid and zoarcid fishes. The ABYPLAINE specimen was found among a low diversity fauna of actiniarians, shrimps, bivalves, and tunicates (Monniot & Segonzac 1985). The BIOZAIRE specimens were obtained in the northern edge of the Zaïre River channel, 6 km south of Regab cold-seep area.
