Description Also distributed in Admiralty Islands, Seleo Island (Clark, 1954); Bay of Bengal, East Indies, north Australia, Philippine, China, south Japan and South Pacific Is. (Clark & Rowe, 1971); Australia (Rowe & Gates, 1995).
General distribution: temperate, discontinuous (South Africa, St. Paul Group), littoral waters (Rowe & Gates, 1995); from St. Helenain the South Atlantic, South Africa, stopping in southern Mozambique but occurring again in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, in the Pacific islands and on the entire east coast of Australia, but not on the north or the south-west coast (Clark & Rowe, 1971).
According to Clark & Rowe (1971), all records (Müller & Troschel, 1842) from the Red Sea are probably erroneous; Dartnall (personal communication to Clark & Rowe) believes that more than one specie is represented in the remaining records, which may account for the apparently anomalous distribution.
Ecology: benthic, inshore (Rowe & Gates, 1995). [details]
