Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 2; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 26-29; Espinas anales 0; Radios blandos anales: 22 - 25. Body brown with up to 12 narrow dark brown crossbars; caudal fin dark brown; soft dorsal, anal and pectoral fins pale; lips dark brown (Ref. 4421). Males with numerous long spines in front of caudal peduncle; females with a toothbrush-like mass of setae (Ref. 1602).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Inhabits clear coastal to outer reefs, usually in rich coral areas with rubble patches or gutters (Ref. 48637). Feeds on coral polyps (Ref. 89972). Solitary or in pairs (Ref. 90102). Less approachable than most filefishes (Ref. 9710). Usually seeks coverage in large corals when approached (Ref. 48637).
