There are very few records of Sudis hyalina known and the distribution of this species needs to be confirmed, particularly on the West African coast. This species is regarded as Data Deficient.
|Range Description:||This species is broadly distributed in the Atlantic Ocean from 50°N to 40°S. This poorly known north Atlantic species has been recorded from near the Canary Islands, however, its distribution along the west African coast has not yet been confirmed. However, numerous MCZ records indicate this species occurs in the Gulf of Guinea, the Eastern Central Atlantic and southern Atlantic Oceans.|
It is also found off of eastern Australia.
