Description synthétique Morphologie | Morphométrie

Épines dorsales (Total): 9; Rayons mous dorsaux (Total): 12-13; Épines anales 3; Rayons mous anaux: 12. Caudal fin slightly rounded in females, truncate and with filamentous rays in large males; pelvic fins of males very long. Large males also become uniformly dark-green and develop a gibbus forehead and an elongate first dorsal spine (Ref. 1602). Juveniles distinct with the false eyes, shaded by orange (Ref. 48636).

Biologie     Glossaire (ex. epibenthic)

Occurs in the vicinity of sand or rubble patches of exposed outer reef flats, lagoon reefs, and seaward reefs (Ref. 1602), often in semi-exposed surge zones (Ref. 48636). Adults solitary. Juveniles common in shallow tide pools (Ref. 30573). Feeds mainly on hard-shelled invertebrates including crustaceans, mollusks and sea urchins (Ref. 9823). Minimum depth reported from Ref. 27115. Randall (1999, Ref. 33411) question identity of specimens exceeding 70 cm.

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

Oviparous, with distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205).
