Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Marine; reef-associated; depth range 2 - 104 m (Ref. 58302). Tropical
Eastern Pacific: known only from Hawaii.
Once considered a pan-Indo-Pacific species, but now confined to the Hawaiian Islands and forms a species complex with the following in the Pacific: Pseudojuloides splendens (Japan to Australia and most South Pacific area); P. polynesica (Fr. Polynesia and Line islands; P. pyrius (endemic to the Marquesas Islands); in the Indian Ocean P. xanthomos (Mauritius); P. polackorum (South Africa to Madagascar); and P. kaleidos (Eastern Indian Ocean).
