Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

This species exhibits a generalised habitat selection and occupies a great range of Acropora corals. It is found in deeper water regions, at lower reef slope and fore reef areas, and is most common in corals such as Acropora samoensis, A. valida and A. secale, but was also observed in Acropora eurystoma and A. pharaonis in the northern Red Sea (Ref. 94082).
