Etymology: Bodianus: Bodianus after Bodiano or Pudiano, from the Portuguese pudor, meaning modesty (Jordan & Evermann, 1896).;  mesothorax: Name from the Greek mesos for middle, and masculine noun thorax or breast plate; apparently in reference to the prominent diagonal black band on the body of adults of this species (Ref. 75973).  More on authors: Bloch & Schneider.

Description synthétique Morphologie | Morphométrie

Épines dorsales (Total): 12; Rayons mous dorsaux (Total): 9-10; Épines anales 3; Rayons mous anaux: 11 - 12. Juveniles and adults resemble their counterparts of B. axillaris, but juveniles have yellow rather than white spots and adults have well-defined black band between the light and dark portions of the body and lack ocelli on the dorsal and anal fins. Color of juveniles changes completely to adult pattern when about 5-6 cm long. The change takes only a few weeks and intermediates are rarely seen (Ref. 48636).

Biologie     Glossaire (ex. epibenthic)

Ranging into subtropical zones as juveniles expatriate caused by warm currents during pelagic stage (Ref. 48636). Adults inhabit coral-rich outer reef slopes at depths of 5 to over 20 m, particularly near caves. Juveniles in caves; adults swim openly about, but usually close to the substrate, and often engage in cleaning larger fishes (Ref. 48636). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205).
