The Shortjaw Bonefish occurs from Hawaii and French Polynesia to the Seychelles in the western Indian Ocean, north to southern Japan and south to Lord Howe Island, Australia. Its type locality is in the Red Sea (Bowen et al. 2008). Reflecting results in Colborn et al. (2001), the geographic range of A. glossodonta is likely representative of multiple species.
