INDIAN OCEAN DISTRIBUTION: Andaman Islands, Australia, Comoro Islands, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritius, Nicobar Islands, Oman, Pakistan, Singapore, Somalia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Yemen.

Note: When transferring Galaxaura versicolor to Amphiroa, Sonder illegitimately changed the epithet to galaxauroides. That species was placed in the synonymy of A. dilatata by Areschoug (1852: 536), and A. dilatata in turn was referred to A. anceps by Weber-van Bosse (1904c: 93–95). Millar (1990: 316–317) provisionally treated A. bowerbankii Harvey as a taxonomic synonym of A. anceps.
