Known from scattered localities in the Pacific, from southern Japan and Micronesia to southern Indonesia and Tahiti, and Cocos-Keeling Atoll in the eastern Indian Ocean. Inhabits areas adjacent to steep outer reef slopes between 25-100m, usually seen deeper than 50m. A very beautifully marked angelfish in both sexes. Females and juveniles are boldly marked with black and white and a curving streak of blue on lower sides.

Fairly easy to keep in aquaria, but sensitive to poor water quality resulting in refusal of food.
