A. pectinifera is found at depths of 3 - 23 m on both sheltered and higher energy reef environments, and is typically cryptic during the day (Messing 1995). Six specimens collected at low tide from the shallow outer reef and rubble crest zones on the northern reef of Heron Island, Queensland, Australia (approximately 23º26'27"S 151º58'49"E) on 20 September 2012 were all found at depths of 0.3 - 0.9 m in crevices under boulders or large coral heads. This area consists of both hard and soft bottoms with large coral heads, areas of coral rubble, and various-sized boulders (Fig. 3).
