Copiapoa dealbata occurs along the Chilean coast, both north and south of Carrizal Bajo, and at a point ca halfway towards Totoral, Atacama, Chile. This species is locally abundant forming groups of several individuals near the coast, in coastal hills (lomas costeras) in a very dry area on sandy alluvial and rocky soils, and desert shrubland on sandy soil. Despite the lack of rain where it lives, the extreme aridity is attenuated by the frequent, often dense, coastal fogs. It shows a recurrent pattern; usually it is overcast in the early mornings, the clouds dissipating during the late morning and returning during the late afternoons.
