Scartella itajobi is found in shallow waters and tide pools in the Fernando de Noronha Archipelago.
Some individuals are also found in small crevices of emerged rocks (2 meters above the sea surface) and can remain out of the water for up to 20 minutes, probably to avoid predators.
Scartella itajobi is locally abundant with fairly large numbers in single collections.
