Range Description

This species occurs on the Saya de Malha Bank, which extends from the exclusive economic zones of the Seychelles to Mauritius. It may also occurs of the coast of Amirante Island, but this is not yet confirmed (Röckel et al. 1995). Owing to the low number of scientific studies carried out on the Saya de Malha the distribution of this species across the bank is not established.

The EOO, AOO, and number of locations for this species exceeds the criteria for B1, B2, and D2 classification.
