World Distribution
McLay (1993 : 206), (2001 : 92) - Indo-ouest Pacifique. Comprend Mer Rouge, Comores, Madagascar, Mer de Chine (Xisha I.), Australie, Nouvelle-Calédonie, Gilbert, Ellice, Funafuti, Polynésie française.
Depth range from McLay (2001: 93, Zoosystema) - 0-105 m. The previously recorded depth range of Cryptodromia hilgendorf is 0-88 m (Mclay 1993). The present material comes from between 35 and 105 m thus extending the maximum depth. The specimen from station CP 1237, from a depth range of
95-305 m, does not seem to justi$' the assumption that the rangeo fthe speciesh ouldb e extendedI.n
view of the fact that all the other specimens came from 105 m, or less,i t seemss afert o assumeth at the maximum depth is somewherea round 105 m.

Environnement : Marine - Substrat/Association : Associated with sponge

Vertical range : Shallow to deep-waters (e.g. 10-190 m) - Min-Max observed: 0-105 m
