Muraena lentiginosa is found in the Eastern Pacific from southern Baja California and the central Gulf of California to Peru, including the Revillagigedo, Cocos, Malpelo and Galapagos Islands.
Muraena lentiginosa is often seen in shallow water. Remains under cover in rocky crevices during the day. Feeds mainly at night on crustaceans and fishes. Constantly opens and closes it mouth, an action required for respiration, not a threat.
