Tetraclita rubescens can be found along the Pacific coast from San Francisco down to Cabo San Lucas (Baja California). Their northern range has extended several  hundred kilometers since the 1970s. They are common on rocks in the middle and low intertidal zones where they are exposed to strong surf. They can also be found in subtidal zones on hard-shelled organisms like abalone, but this is less frequent. (Dawson et al. 2010, Newman and Abbott 1980).
