Distribution

This species was previously known from the Indian Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Red Sea and Mediterranean ( Çinar et al. 2002). In the Mediterranean Sea, it was first reported from the Israeli coast at depths ranging from 10 to 15 m by Ben-Eliahu (1991) and considered to be a Lessepsian migrant. It was also reported from the Aegean ( Çinar et al. 2002) and Levantine coasts ( Ergev et al. 2003) of Turkey.
