Épines dorsales (Total): 11; Rayons mous dorsaux (Total): 14-16; Épines anales 3; Rayons mous anaux: 8. Distinguished by the following characteristics: juveniles black with white polka dots become numerous, smaller, and coalesce to form a pattern of wavy lines on the sides with growth (Ref. 37816); ctenoid scales on body except cycloid anteriorly above lateral line, thorax and abdomen; body with auxiliary scales; greatest depth of body 2.8-3.2 in SL; rounded caudal fin; short pelvic fins, 1.9-2.4 in head length (Ref. 90102); head length 2.3-2.5 times in SL; head pointed, flat interorbital area, dorsal head profile slightly convex; rounded preopercle, serrae small and mostly covered by skin; strongly convex upper edge of operculum, rear edge almost vertical, upper spine extending posterior to lower spine; posterior nostril diameter about twice that the anterior nostril; maxilla reaches to or slightly vertical at rear edge of eye; small, embedded scales on maxilla; 2-4 rows of small teeth at midlateral part of lower jaw; canines at front of jaws small or absent (Ref. 89707).

Biologie     Glossaire (ex. epibenthic)

Inhabits inner coastal and lagoon reefs, also in brackish waters where it occurs in ledges and caves (Ref. 5213). Feeds on crustaceans and small fishes (Ref. 89707). Adults usually in 20+ m depth (Ref. 48635). Solitary (Ref 90102).
