Aegires exeches is known from the Marshalls from at least 22 specimens all found at Enewetak Atoll. All were on lagoon reefs and pinnacles at depths of 4 to 11 meters. All but one were under rocks, with the lone exception on the wall of a small cave. Sixteen specimens ranged in length from 3 to 11mm.
