Dorsal spines (total): 13; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13-14; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8. Scale rows below lateral line oblique; head entirely scaled except for front of snout near upper lip and front of chin; snout very short; the maxilla not reaching a vertical through center of eye; silvery gray with five dusky yellow stripes, the two lowermost the broadest (Ref. 13442).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs along exposed outer or deeper reefs. Found on semi-hard substrates (Ref. 5217). Feeds mainly on plankton (Ref. 5217); small crustaceans (Ref. 26938).
