Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 13 - 14; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 225; Taggstrålar i analfenan 2; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 23 - 25. Color dusky, greenish with dusky lines. Males with crest and dorsal with alternate dark and pale oblique lines (Ref. 48636).

Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Adults occur in the intertidal zone of rocky shores, rocky reef flats (Ref. 9710), including rock pools, harbors and mangrove zones (Ref. 48636). They graze algae on rocks by groups (Ref. 90102). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).
