Mar 12, 2020.  Harry Lee comments:  "Considering the fact that the genus was introduced in a monograph treating the eastern Pacific fauna, it is somewhat ironic that presently (Huber, 2015: 288-289; 734-737; WoRMS, its six species live in the Indo-West Pacific as well as both sides of the Atlantic and not in the eastern Pacific (Panamic Province).
