||A. lineatus was recognised in 1972 by Randall. Prior to this, was identified as A. melanurus and earlier records probably confuse these two taxa. This has affected the distribution records especially in the eastern Indian Ocean.
|Range Description:||This species is found from the Red Sea down the east coast of Africa, Madagascar, Maldives and Laccadives and possibly presence in Andaman and Nicobar Islands needs clarification. Records from most of South East Asia probably refer to A. melanurus.|
