Morphology | Morphometrics
Very similar to Ecsenius trilineatus in having white spots and thin dark lines. In E. schroederi there are two mid-lateral close together with a series of white spots between them (Ref. 48636).
Adults occur solitary on sheltered reefs with rich coral growth (Ref. 48636, 90102). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).
