Western Pacific: Sri Lanka (Ref. 1550) and Sumatra to Fiji, north to the Philippines; Palau and Truk in Micronesia. Matsuura 1999, pers. comm. strongly doubts its distribution in the southern GBR (as reported in Lieske & Meyers 1994, Ref. 9710) and does not know of any reliable record of this species from East Africa.
