A. solandri is widely distributed, and is recorded from the circum-tropical parts of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans. The first record of this species from the Indian Ocean (Arabian Sea) is that of Boulenger (1897) who gives a detailed description of a specimen collected and sent to the British Museum by Surgeon- Lieut.—Col. Jayakar from Muscat. Other records of this fish from the Indian Ocean are from the Delagoa Bay and Durban coasts in South Africa (Smith, 1949); Ceylon coast (Deraniyagala, 1952 ; Munro, 1955); and from Minicoy Island (Jones and Kumaran, 1959); the Wadge Bank area in India (John, 1959); and subsequently from Andamans and Tuticorin (Jones, Silas and Dawson, 1960).
