Description synthétique Morphologie | Morphométrie

Épines dorsales (Total): 13 - 14; Rayons mous dorsaux (Total): 20-23; Épines anales 3; Rayons mous anaux: 17 - 20; Vertèbres: 24. Body is yellowish brown with two broad white vertical bars running across the body one from near the origin of the dorsal spine and the other from the middle of the back. A black bar runs vertically across the eye. There are numerous dotted horizontal stripes on the sides. The margin of caudal fin is transparent (Ref. 4855). Snout length 2.5-3.2 in HL. Body depth 1.5-1.8 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Biologie     Glossaire (ex. epibenthic)

Occur in deeper lagoons and channels, and seaward reefs (Ref. 1602). Benthopelagic (Ref. 58302). Depth 2-61 m, usually below 10 m (Ref. 90102). Occur singly or in pairs (Ref. 37816). Common, omnivorous individuals that feed mainly on soft coral polyps (mainly on Sarcophyton tracheliophorum and Litophyton viridis), algae and zooplankton. Oviparous (Ref. 205). Form pairs during breeding (Ref. 205).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturité | Reproduction | Frai | Œufs | Fécondité | Larves

Distinct pairing (Ref. 205). Monogamous mating is observed as both obligate and social (Ref. 52884).
