Spiny lobsters are also, especially in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, sometimes called crayfish, sea crayfish or crawfish, terms which elsewhere are reserved for freshwater crayfish.

Spiny lobsters are found in waters off Florida, Southern California, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
