Etymology: Bodianus: Bodianus after Bodiano or Pudiano, from the Portuguese pudor, meaning modesty (Jordan & Evermann, 1896).; masudai: Named for Hajime Masuda, collector and co-authored the study re this species (Ref. 75973).
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Marine; reef-associated; depth range 30 - 113 m (Ref. 75973). Subtropical
Western Pacific: antitropical distribution, Japan, New Caledonia and Norfolk Island.

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 12.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 43239)
Specimens were collected from rocky reefs at 30-113 m depths, but may be more common at greater depths (Ref. 75973). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205).
