Indo-West Pacific: west coast of India; Philippines and Indonesia to Papua New Guinea, south to northern Australia (Ref. 9710).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs on coastal and seaward reefs. Adults on deep, current-prone slopes with rich invertebrate growth; juveniles on sheltered reefs nearby (Ref. 48635). Found singly, in small groups under ledges or large resting aggregations by day, forages for small invertebrates at night (Ref. 9710, 90102). Mainly speared. Caught throughout its range; not common. Rarely marketed in India (Ref. 3412).
