Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Inhabits invertebrate-rich inshore reef to outer reef walls where usually in caves in depths of about 25 meters or more. Found singly or in pairs and on one occasion a small groups was observed among plate-corals on soft bottom (Ref. 48637). Feeds on algae and small invertebrates (Ref. 89972).
