Etymology: Trimma: Greek, trimma, -atos = something crushed (Ref. 45335); fucatum: Name from Latin ‘fucatus’, meaning painted, coloured, or rouged; referring to the red markings on and around the preopercle. More on authors: Winterbottom & Southcott.
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Marine; reef-associated; depth range 0 - 23 m (Ref. 59340). Tropical
Indo-West Pacific: Andaman Sea, Phuket, Thailand, Myanmar and Indonesia.
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 2.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 59340)
soft rays: 7 - 8. This species is distinguished by having predorsal scales; second and third dorsal spines not elongated; with interorbital and postorbital trenches; opercular scales 2; a single dichotomous branch in the fifth pelvic-fin ray; when alive has three or four rows of yellow to orange blotches along the body and a narrow red bar on the vertical limb of the preopercle (Ref. 59340); characterized further by having longitudinal scale series 21-25; predorsal scales 4-5; cheek without scales; depth of body 4.3 in SL (Ref. 90102).
Collected specimens came from patch reefs and coral slopes with diverse coral cover, except for the 3 specimens collected from a steep (45°) wall of large boulders with little algal or coral growth (Ref. 59340).
