DistributionRead full entry
The type locality of this species is in the Indian Ocean at 10°8'S, 97°14'E. It is also found off southern Japan, the Philippine Islands, the Hawaiian Islands, and through the central equatorial Pacific. Given these locations, it presumably also occurs throughout the tropical and subtropical Indo-Pacific, but records are limited (Young 2014). Roper and Jereb (2010) report it as occurring in the eastern Indian Ocean and in the Pacific Ocean in north subtropical and equatorial waters.
