Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

This species differs from its congeners in having an almost transparent (except for a dark anterior part of the dorsal- and ventral margin), slightly whitish to yellowish caudal fin versus the dark blue caudal fin in C. argi and C. aurantonotus or a bright yellow to orange caudal fin with a dark blue distal margin in C. resplendens Ref. 53274).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Benthopelagic species found in reefs (Ref. 58302); in coral bottoms of channels and over reef slopes (Ref. 9710); also in areas with rubble bottom (Ref. 4858). Often in small loose groups on inner reefs in low patches of brittle corals and coralline algae mix that is shared by damselfishes and small wrasses (Ref. 48636). Herbivorous (Ref. 33482). Occasionally exported through the aquarium trade (Ref. 48391).
