The distribution of this species is given as European and Asian Artctic seas, Spitzbergen to the Chukchi Sea, and south to the central Bering Sea, north of the Pribilof Islands. This individual was taken by otter trawl during a research cruise in the northeastern Chukchi Sea in September 1991. It was observed occasionally, usually associated with rocky substrates and sponges. For additional information on Chukchi Sea mollusks, see Feder et al. 1994 Arctic 47 (2) :143-163.
