AbstractThis article provides general information on habitat, behavior, and conservation status of Anisotremus moricandi and reinforces its distribution to the western Atlantic. The species inhabits rocky reefs with low coralline overgrowth and it is found in reef crevices in small groups or solitary individuals. The distribution of A. moricandi seems to be discontinuous occurring in the coasts of Panama (Caribbean side), Aruba, Colombia, Orchila Island (Venezuela) and in Brazil (from Ceará State to Espírito Santo State).
