Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species is common on sheltered seaward reefs, primarily on the inner and eastern portions of the Cenderawasih Bay at depths between about 22 to 60 m, although it is more abundant below about 35 m. Observed to be in groups of about 10 to 20 individuals, including one to five males, and were typically encountered on rubble slopes or on rubble substrates at the base of slopes. Apparently feeds on zooplankton, which is typical for the genus, at a short distance above the bottom (Ref. 75881).
