Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 12; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 15-16; Spine anali 2; Raggi anali molli: 16 - 18. Identified by a simple tentacle above eye, small white spots on face and large black spot on throat (Ref. 48636). Males have a distinct black blotch ventrally on each side of the head.

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Adults found solitary or in small groups in seaward reef crests and outer reef slopes in exposed shallow reef fronts subject to mild to moderate surge (Ref. 48636, 90102). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114). Minimum depth of 2 m reported from Ref. 90102.
