Range Description

The type locality of this species is in the Indian Ocean at 108'S, 9714'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.
