Épines dorsales (Total): 8; Rayons mous dorsaux (Total): 12-14; Épines anales 3; Rayons mous anaux: 10 - 12. Males display with brilliant colors, red lines turning purple and often the abdomen bright yellow (Ref. 48636). Two uneven red stripes on dorsal half of body, 1 from below dorsal-fin origin onto upper caudal lobe, the other from above pectoral-fin base to caudal peduncle. Pectoral fins with green base and dark pectoral fins (Ref 9823).

Biologie     Glossaire (ex. epibenthic)

Found in clear outer lagoon reefs (Ref. 9710) and exposed seaward reefs. Abundant in shallow exposed areas with surge channels (Ref. 9710, 48636), with gutters, large Acropora plates and algae bottom (Ref. 48636). Benthopelagic (Ref. 58302). Males are often in small loose numbers, swimming over reef sections where small groups of females stay close to the bottom. Juveniles secretive in shallow gutters (Ref. 48636). Feed mainly on benthic crustaceans (crabs, shrimps), small fishes, gastropod mollusks, and sea urchins.
