Eastern Atlantic: Bay of Biscay and Mediterranean Sea to Senegal, north to Cornwall, England (apparently as a stray). Compagno et al. (Ref. 5578) reports this species as ranging south to Cape Point, South Africa but Springer 1990 (Ref. 10718) notes Bass et al. 1976 as considering specimens from Walvis Bay distinct from Oxynotus centrina calling attention to the considerably greater distance between dorsal fins in Mediterranean specimens than in specimens taken south of the equator.
