Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Closely associated with a bryozoan, which is provisionally identified as a member of the genus Triphyllozoon; the color pattern of the fish effectively blends with the coloration of the host invertebrate, and the fish effectively maintains a burrow within the folded recesses of the bryozoan colony; the depth range of collections and observations was about 15–30 m, usually on black volcanic-sand slopes, with the inconspicuous bryozoan colonies (roughly spherical-shaped with a diameter ranging from 3–7 cm) often attached to small pieces of coral rubble or volcanic rock (Ref. 107790).
