Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 8 - 10. 4 prominent reddish bands across back (Ref. 26938).

Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Primarily found in shallow inshore waters (Ref. 4964). Rests on hard surfaces rather than on sand (Ref. 9710). Also occurs in reef areas, but ventures into open shelf water as deep as 90 m (Ref. 7251). Caught with several types of artisanal gear. Reportedly good to eat, but not utilized widely (Ref. 4964).
