Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 13; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 12-13; Spine anali 2; Raggi anali molli: 12 - 14. This species is distinguished by the following characters: D XII-XIII,12-13 (usually XIII,12); A II,12-14 (often II,13); pectoral rays 16-17; lateral line tubed scales 14-17; gill rakers total, 25-29; body depth is 1.5-1.8 in SL; colouration, silvery grey with paler scale centers and yellow belly, the anterior half of anal fin and anterior margin of soft dorsal fin and the upper and lower margins of caudal fin is blackish; upper pectoral fin base with a distinct wedge-shaped black mark (Ref. 82240).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit lagoons, reef passages, and the outer reef slopes as solitary individuals or in small groups. Feed on copepods, amphipods, mysids, fish eggs, crustacean larvae, and a small portion of algae (Ref. 7247). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). Eggs are demersal and adhere to the substrate (Ref. 205). Males guard and aerate the eggs (Ref. 205).
