Distribution. Circumoceanic, in warm waters of the Atlantic (south of 43°N), Pacific (South China Sea, Kuroshio Current, tropical eastern Pacific), and Indian (Bay of Bengal) Oceans; Mediterranean Sea; in the 200-300 m layer, often in surface layer (0-50 m) ( Siegel-Causey 1982, Vinogradov et al. 1996). Off Australia ( Zeidler 1998). In the eastern Pacific from off the west coast of Baja California, and from 28°30’N, in the Gulf of California, to off Gorgona Island, Colombia ( García Madrigal 2007, Lavaniegos & Hereu 2009, Valencia & Giraldo 2012).

Remarks. Siegel-Causey (1982) reported this species as relatively common in the Gulf of California. In the Mexican tropical Pacific it is relatively frequent and abundant ( Gasca et al., 2012). It has been reported in association with the siphonophore Agalma elegans (Sars, 1846) ( Harbison et al. 1977)   .
