Short description

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8. Illicium slightly longer than 2nd dorsal spine tapering to a non-filamentous simple tentacle that lacks an esca. Lacks a groove between the upper jaw and base of the illicium. Distinctive color pattern in which there is a broad dark band and marginal dark bands on the anal and caudal fins.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Benthic species (Ref. 58302, 75154) found in inshore coral reef (Ref. 75154). The average depth for all known captures was 11.2 m. Individuals maintained in experimental aquaria change in color from dark gray to light cream within 2 weeks. Oviparous. Eggs are bound in ribbon-like sheath or mass of gelatinous mucus called 'egg raft' or 'veil' (Ref. 6773). Solitary and sometimes among hard coral branches (Ref 90102).

IUCN Red List Status (Ref. 115185)
