Range DescriptionThis species is found throughout the Red Sea. A separate population has also been reported off Libya in the Mediterranean Sea (Röckel et al. 1995). However, for the moment, the occurrence off Libya is questionable (G. Raybaudi and S. Veldsman pers. comm. October 2011).
The EOO, AOO and number of locations exceed the thresholds for criteria B1 and B2.
