Phyllidia exquisita is rare in the Marshalls, known from only three specimens all found at Kwajalein Atoll. Specimens were in ledges or under rocks on the top of the seaward reef in 5 to 10 meters of water. We have seen P. exquisita also in Pohnpei and the Solomons.
Below is a juvenile found under a chunk of dead coral.
