V. contei is a potentially cosmopolitan species; however, it has often been confused with other bryozoan species, especially Celloporina costazii. Its documented range in the western Atlantic extends from Cape Hatteras south to Florida. V. contei is found year-round at coastal stations surrounding the Indian River Lagoon. It has been recorded from several locations within the Indian River Lagoon, notably from around the Fort Pierce Inlet; but it is likely to be somewhat more widespread than reported due to its cryptic nature and small stature.
