At the present time Tritoniopsis elegans is known from the Red Sea and eastern coast of Africa. It is closely related to Tritoniopsis alba from the tropical western Pacific Ocean. In fact, some people have speculated they may be the same species, in which case the name would have to be Tritoniopsis elegans because it is older. However, until a comparative anatomical study, possibly reinforced with molecular data, has been undertaken and published it is advisable to consider them as separate species.
