Etymology: Bodianus: Bodianus after Bodiano or Pudiano, from the Portuguese pudor, meaning modesty (Jordan & Evermann, 1896).;  anthioides: Name from the Greek masculine noun 'anthias', a common name for members of the anthiine serranid fishes, and 'oides' for having the form of, refers to the similarity of this species to various anthiine species (Ref. 75973).

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 24.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 1602)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 12; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 10 - 12. Undergoes relatively minor changes in color with growth. Easily identified by the unusual coloration and long tail (Ref. 48636).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit seaward reefs. They occur on reefs rich with invertebrates such as gorgonians, seawhips and black corals (Ref. 48636). Common along steep outer reef slopes deeper than 25 m in Micronesia. Usually seen as lone individuals (Ref. 48636). Juveniles pose as cleaners (Ref. 8631). May be solitary or may exist in pairs (Ref. 5503). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01230 (0.00548 - 0.02760), b=3.04 (2.84 - 3.24), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.44 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (39 of 100) .
