Etymology: Bodianus: Bodianus after Bodiano or Pudiano, from the Portuguese pudor, meaning modesty (Jordan & Evermann, 1896).;  bilunulatus: Name formed from the Latin adverb bis, for twice and Latin diminutive noun lunula (luna + ulus) for 'somewhat like the moon'; apparently referring to the lunate caudal fin (double emarginate with filamentous lobes) of the type specimen (Ref. 75973).  More on author: Lacepède.

Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 12; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 10; Espinas anales 3; Radios blandos anales: 12. Young easily identified by the unusual coloration. Adults normally have an oval shaped black saddle near the tail, but it may become indistinct in large males (Ref. 48636).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Adults occur on deep reef slopes rich with invertebrates such as sponges and seawhips, but young adults are occasionally seen much shallower (Ref. 48636). Usually solitary in coral and rocky reefs. Feed mainly on benthic, hard-shelled, invertebrates such as mollusks and crustaceans. Protogynous (Ref. 55080). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205).
