Range DescriptionThe species is recorded from marine, brackish, and occasionally freshwater environments, from eastern India (Orissa (Chilka Lake, the type locality) and West Bengal (Sundarbans); Subba Rao 1989, Ramakrishna and Dey 2007) to the Philippines. Dang et al. (1980) and Brandt (1974) did not report this species from Viet Nam or Thailand. There is also a record from northern Australia (Cosel 2010). The species is apparently distributed across the Andaman Sea, the northern Indian Ocean, and coastal areas of southeast Asian countries (Madhyastha pers. comm. 2011).
