Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 13; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal spines : 3; Anal soft rays : 5 - 6. Body reddish with vague broad bars; paired fins with bars; median fins with small dark spots (Ref. 4313 ). Mid-dorsal spines shorter than body depth (Ref. 37816 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Common in reef flats and shallow lagoons, in areas with weed-covered rocks on sandy substrates. Adults often found on sponges and juveniles are sometimes found in small aggregations on remote bommies with 10 or so individuals (Ref. 48635 ). Nocturnal. Feeds on small crustaceans (Ref. 37816 ).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Distinct pairing (Ref. 205 ). Females possess specialized ovarian structures including stalk-like ovigerous lamellae and secretory epithelia (Ref. 32832 ).
