Distribution map of Candacia tuberculata by geographical zones
Species Candacia tuberculata - Distribution map 2issued from : T.J. Lawson in Marine Biology, 1977, 43. [Fig.5, p.81].
Distribution map for the Indian Ocean.
Loc:
Malvinas Is., Pakistan, Kenya, N Indian, Madras, Bay of Bengal, Indonesia-Malaysia, Bintulu coast, China Seas (East China Sea), Strait of Taiwan, Japan
N: 15 (Indian: 6; Indo-Malaysia: 5; Pacif.: 4)
Lg.:
(5) M: 2; (81) F: 1,8; (120) F: 1,93; M: 2,09; (151) F: 1,94; (290) F: 1,95-1,9; M: 1,85-1,7; (343) F: 1,98-1,56; M: 1,42-1,16; (795) F: 1,8; (866) M: 1,6-1,88; {F: 1,56-1,98; M: 1,16-2,09}

The mean female size is 1.858 mm (n = 8; SD = 0.1376), and the mean male size is 1.688 mm (n = 8; SD = 0.3033). The size ratio (male : female) is about 0.91.
