Range DescriptionThis species was thought to be endemic to the Gulf of Aden, where it occurs along the north Somalia coast including Djibouti and off the north of the Gulf along the Yemeni coast (Röckel et al. 1995). However, it may also be found in the southern part of the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea, but because of the protected status of the Red Sea area, this is not possible to verify at the moment.
