; marino asociado a arrecife; no migratorio; rango de profundidad 40 - 300 m (Ref. 89972), usually 100 - 250 m (Ref. 9710). Tropical; 30°N - 59°S, 29°E - 150°W (Ref. 5222)

Indo-Pacific: islands of the western Indian Ocean to Japan and the central Pacific. Except for a single specimen caught off the coast of Natal, South Africa, Heemstra and Randall 1993 know of no confirmed records from other continental localities of East Africa. Cephalopholis aurantia from east Africa reported by Morgans 1982 (Ref. 6448) is a misidentification of Cephalopholis nigripinnis.
