Acanthurus chronixis was reported from 5 countries/islands


Table 1: the species is currently present in 1 of them (endemic, native, introduced);
Table 2: possible in 1 of them (stray, questionable);
Table 3: absent from 3 of them (extirpated, not established, misidentification, error).
Table 4: all reports listed together.

Distribution: Western Pacific: Kapingamarangi Atoll, Caroline Islands. Possibly endemic of that atoll. Reports from other areas are likely misidentifications of the juvenile stages of Acanthurus pyroferus (J.E. Randall, pers. comm.), e.g. from Taiwan (Shao et al., 2008).
