Pacific Ocean: currently known only from the southwestern Pacific Ocean (Tasman Sea and northern New Zealand) at depths of 731-1020 m. One specimen (CSIRO H 2625-02, 263.3 mm SL, non-type), tentatively identified as T. carnomagula in ref. 58335 , was collected from southwest of Western Australia, Indian Ocean, at a depth of 738–750 m. Trachyscorpia carnomagula co-occurs with T. eschmeyeri.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 2.1 - 7.5, mean 6.1 (based on 72 cells; Ref. 115970).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.8   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (62 of 100) .
