Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 9; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 10; Taggstrålar i analfenan 3; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 12. Body red with white stripe on lower side. Black spot at base of anterior dorsal spines. Very distinctive and colorful species. (Ref. 26938).

Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit coral and rocky reefs, rarely at depths greater than 24 m (Ref. 9710). Feed on crabs and small shellfish (Ref. 3726). Juveniles pick parasites from other fishes (Ref. 9710). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). May hybridize with Spanish hogfish, B. rufus (Ref. 40096). Marketed fresh (Ref. 3726).
