This species is considerably smaller than related species but otherwise very similar. Shell up to 1 cm across.
This species is among the few bivalves to be able to move about in water. They may use non-bound sulphide in the sediment since burrows are found to be lined with deposits of ferrous iron.
In sandy silt with relatively low levels of free sulphide.
Western and eastern Australia.
