Aetea truncata has a cosmopolitan distribution, but is absent from polar seas. It can be found on all British coasts, colonising a wide range of substrates including algae, hydoirds and hard substrates

The colonies are white in colour and are composed of creeping branching stolons from which a free erect portion arises at the distal end.
