We have seen about a dozen Ceratosoma palliolatum specimens here in the Marshalls, all at Kwajalein Atoll. They seem to live exclusively on the slopes of lagoon pinnacles. All but one were found at night crawling in ledges and small caves at depths of 10 to 20 meters; the one exception was in a similar area during the day hiding under a rock. The largest one we've seen measured about 45mm in length.
