Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 12 - 13; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 24-28; Taggstrålar i analfenan 3; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 20 - 23. Body is white with orange to orange-brown oblique bands on the sides. Two broad yellow-edged black bars are on the head; one running across the eye and another on the snout (Ref. 4855). Snout length 2.6-3.2 in HL. Body depth 1.3-1.6 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Occur in clear waters and coral-rich areas of lagoon and seaward reefs. However, only common in seaward reefs (Ref. 1602). Benthopelagic (Ref. 58302). Juveniles are solitary, living among branching corals, while adults are almost always in pairs and are home-ranging. Feed exclusively on coral tissue (Ref. 1602). Oviparous (Ref. 205). Form pairs during breeding (Ref. 205).

Life cycle and mating behavior Könsmognad | Reproduktion | Lek | Ägg | Fecundity | Larver

Distinct pairing (Ref. 205). Monogamous mating is observed as obligate, genetic and social (Ref. 52884).
