Distribution

West-Pacific. We agree with Coomans et al. (1982) that C. pseudocedonulli is best considered a geographic subspecies of C. ammiralis, occurring throughout the Indian Ocean as far east as W. Thailand. Although Richard (1982, 1990) and da Motta and Lenavat (1979) recorded C. a. ammiralis from W. Thailand, da Motta later (1987: p. 28) noted that it does not occur there: "The nearest colony of ammiralis [to W. Thailand] is located off Songklha inside the Gulf of Thailand." Thus the Malayan Peninsula appears to be the distributional boundary between the two subspecies.
