Micromelo undatum is known in the Marshalls from just a few specimens. They inhabit lagoon sandy areas at depths of 5 to 15 meters. Micromelo undatum was originally described from the Caribbean, and the Pacific variety was given a different name, Micromelo guamensis. Now many opisthobranch researchers think it is probably just one circumtropical species. Specimens we have seen in Hawaii have some slight color differences.
