This species is endemic to the Eastern Pacific, and is only found near Cocos Island, a very similar but possibly undescribed species from the Revillagigedo Islands.
Very special thanks for the first two photos of Axoclinus cocoensis to Dr. Ross Robertson, Australia.
He has taken the photos of the benthic species at Cocos Islands, where the fish inhabits shallow rocky reefs to depths of 35 m.
