Range DescriptionThis species is found from the southern Red Sea, Arabian Gulf, Gulf of Thailand, Viet Nam, Indonesia, Philippines and southern Japan (Burton and Davie 2007). It may also be found in India but new specimens are needed to confirm this. This species was recently mistaken for Thenus parindicus and Thenus australiensis, both of which are fished off eastern Australian. As such reports of this species in fisheries reports of the area are false (P. Davie pers. comm. 2010).
