Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 10; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 13-14; Taggstrålar i analfenan 3; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 10. Preorbital bone broader than eye diameter. Mouth large, the maxilla extending to below anterior half of eye. A deep notch on lower edge of opercle. Scale rows on back parallel to lateral line. Juveniles with white spots on back, a black bar through eye and a broad, thick horizontal band from eye to rear edge of opercle. A black stripe from pectoral region to lower caudal lobe. Adults have yellow eyes (Ref. 48635). Body depth 2.2-2.4 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit steep slopes of lagoon, channel, or seaward reefs (Ref. 9710), commonly on deep reef slopes and may be in small groups (Ref. 9710, 48635). Juveniles occur singly on protected reef slopes with feather stars, in staghorn corals or large sponges. Occasionally, they aggregate with M. niger (Ref. 37816). They feed primarily on large zooplankton at night. Frequently seen in markets, mainly fresh.
