Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 3; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 12-13; Spine anali 0; Raggi anali molli: 7. Color variable, usually yellow, red or pale tan, often with a weakly pigmented dark spot at posterior dorsal fin base. Illicium about equal to the length of the 2nd dorsal spine. Esca a spherical whitish blob or it may be filamentous. Last ray of pelvic fin bifurcate. Caudal peduncle absent.

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Collected from tide pools as well as lagoon and seaward reefs (Ref. 1602); secretive among rocks and sponges (Ref. 48635). Feeds on small fishes (Ref. 89972). Benthic (Ref. 58302). Oviparous. Eggs are bound in ribbon-like sheath or mass of gelatinous mucus called 'egg raft' or 'veil' (Ref. 6773). Found among reef crevices or among rubble in 1-75 m, but usually less than 10 m (Ref 90102).
