Range Description

This species is endemic to Lake Baikal at 300-400 m depth and can be found near Sosnovka (Matekin et al. 1988, Kantor et al. 2009). This species is only known from this locality (the type locality - Sosnovskaya Banka). However, northern Lake Baikal is considerably less studied than the southern basin and so the lack of specimens for this species may be an artefact of poor sampling effort (E. Michel pers. comm. 2010). The estimated extent of occurrence for this species is approximately 1,200 km2.
