Indo-Pacific: Known from the Society Islands, Hawaiian Islands, Palau (Myers, 1999), Solomon Islands, Great Barrier Reef, Ryukyu Islands (Senou et al., 2004), Gulf of Thailand, Indonesia (Randall, 2005), Chagos Archipelago, Maldive Islands (Kuiter, 1998), and Oman (Randall, 1995). Reported as a first record for the Red Sea from an underwater photograph taken by Sven Kahlbrock off Hurghada, Egypt (Ref. 89154). Maldives (Ref. 30829) and Chagos Archipelago to the Hawaiian Islands.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabit deep slopes, subject to strong currents, with isolated outcrops of black corals (Ref. 48637). Benthic (Ref. 58302). Found in small groups. Eggs are laid on a branch section after removing the polyps and guarded by the male (Ref. 48637). Associated with antipatharian corals at depths below 15 m (Ref. 2334). Dart out to feed on small animals of the plankton (Ref. 11441).
