Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 68-74; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 57 - 66; Vertebrae: 74 - 84. Coloration varied, capable of changing its color. Spots or blotches on body form reticulations and crossbands; paler ventrally. Gill membranes ventrally free from the isthmus. Posterior otic sensory canal pore present.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits coastal waters, often in brackish conditions (Ref. 48636). Found hidden amongst rocks or coral rubble (Ref. 48636). Reproductive activity appears to be cyclical and the species may not be a protogynous hermaphrodite (Ref. 2077). Also found in coral reefs among crevices (Ref 90102).
