Distribution. Cosmopolitan in tropical and subtropical water, including the Mediterranean Sea ( Vinogradov et al. 1996). In the eastern Pacific it ranges from the west coast of the Baja California Peninsula (north to 27°38’14”N) to Michoacán, including the Gulf of California, Mexico, and off Panama and Ecuador (García Madrigal 2007, Guillén Pozo, 2007, Valencia et al. 2013).

Remarks. Found mostly to 500 m depth ( Vinogradov et al. 1996), but García Madrigal (2007) recorded it from 1230‒1800 m.
