This species is found in the Indo-Pacific from the Philippines to the southern Great Barrier Reef and New Caledonia, eastwards to Marshall and Caroline islands, southwards to Scott Reef off northwestern Australia.

This species inhabits coastal, sandy areas and lagoon reef slopes, occasionally as shallow as 2 m. It is found solitary or form groups.
Juveniles recruit to shallow rubble areas.
