The very elongate, smooth shell of this species distinguishes it from other Victorian bivalves. Shell up to 10 cm across.
These shells are a food source for wading birds. They are exploited for food in other parts of the world and in China some species are cultivated. In northern Australia some species in this family group are exploited for food by indigenous communities.
In soft sand or mud areas.
Most states of Australia.
