Habitat
The species is cosmopolitan, not rare, and lives epibenthic or periphytic.
Characteristics
The body is elongate, vermiform and transparent, and the lorica is very thin and highly flexible. The dark-red pigmented retrocerebral organ behind the brain appears very distinctive in the otherwise transparent animal. The species is recognized by the combination of the vermiform body shape, the pigmented retrocerebral organ, and the special jaws with conspicuously bifurcated manubria.
