Etymology: Cirrhilabrus: Latin, cirrus = curl fringe + Greek, labros = furious (Ref. 45335).
Environment / Climate / Range
Marine; demersal; depth range 15 - 40 m (Ref. 48636). Tropical, preferred ?
Western Central Pacific: Indonesia.
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 7.5 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 48636)
soft rays: 9. Juveniles and females similar to several other species and identification depends on the presence of a male that has a long dorsal filament and red anal fin, latter may look black in natural light (Ref. 48636).
Occurs on open hard-bottom substrates with algae and sparse coral growth, usually in strong current zones. Juveniles and females in small groups, sometimes with several males of which largest is dominating (Ref. 48636).

Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01479 (0.00651 - 0.03363), b=2.94 (2.74 - 3.14), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 3.3 ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
