The Two-banded Bream or Two-banded Seabream, is native to the eastern Atlantic, including the Mediterranean and Black Seas. It is also called the Common Two-banded Bream to distinguish it from another Two-banded Bream, D. prayensis, endemic to the coasts of Cape Verde Islands. The latter has thinner bands, especially a thin black line that borders the face.
