It is a marine, temperate water-dwelling eel which is known from the eastern China Sea, Japan, and Taiwan, in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. It has a widespread distribution, and inhabits sandy regions. Males can reach a maximum total length of 53 centimetres.
The diet of Ariosoma major consists primarily of bony fish and crabs.
