DistributionRead full entry
Range DescriptionThis species is wide ranging and occurs in pockets across the Indian Ocean: Mozambique, Madagascar, Somalia, Seychelles, India, and Sri Lanka; and in the Pacific: Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, and Samoa. (Rockel et al. 1995). The patchy distribution may be a reflection of a lack of data, and it may be much more widespread (G. Raybaudi pers. comm. October 2011).
