Special thanks for the perfect photos to LemonTeaYK from Japan.
The dusky fairy-warsse is only known from the holotype from Kalimantan, Indonesia.
Sighted in a habitat characterised by a steep slope beginning in relatively deep water; about 10 individuals, including the holotype, were observed at 40 m, on a flat to gently sloping rubble bottom along the upper edge of a vertical drop-off
Remarks: This species is closely related to Cirrhilabrus lunatus and females look almost identical.
