Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 12; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 12. Dorsal-fin rays XII, 10; analfin rays III, 12; caudal-fin rays 10 (6) or 11 (4) + 12 + 10; pectoral-fin rays ii, 11 (1), 13 (1), 14 (19) or 15 (3); predorsal scales ?22–25; total gill rakers 15 (1) or 17 (5). See Tables 2 and 8 for morphometric values. Head and snout elongate; jaws attenuate. Cheek scales reaching forward on upper side of mouth to below or slightly in advance of anterior extent of orbit, scales reaching forward on lower jaw slightly in advance of posterior corner of mouth; single scale usually apparent midway between corner of mouth and anterior tip of jaw. Upper jaw with first prominent anterior canine equal to or slightly smaller than second; first canine directed anteroventrally, tip often curved ventrally; second canine directed ventrolaterally and slightly anteriorly, tip occasionally curved ventrally; dental ridge mostly straight with ?6–21 very small canines; single moderately large prominent canine at posterior end of jaw directed anteroventrally and slightly laterally in small individuals, directed more anteriorly in larger specimens. Lower jaw with first prominent anterior canine ?2?3–¾ length of second; first canine directed anterodorsally and usually slightly laterally, tip often curved dorsally; dental ridge usually long and continuous with about 15–22 very small canines in single row; teeth becoming only slightly larger posteriorly; teeth occasionally separable into 2 series. Pelvic fin short, posterior tip approaching anus only in small individuals.

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Indian Ocean: East Africa (but not the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, or Somalia), east to the Nicobar Islands and Cocos-Keeling Islands (Ref. 75973). Replaced by Bodianus dictynna in the tropical Western Pacific and the the longer snouted Bodianus prognathus in the Line Islands (Ref. 37816).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults are found in coral rich areas of seaward reefs (Ref. 5213). Reported to be associated with the mushroom Heliofungia actiniformis (Ref. 91291). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205).
