Etymology: Manonichthys: Name is a combination of Greek manon which is a kind of sponge, and ichthys for fish, referring to the sponge-dwelling behaviour of the species under this genus.;  scintilla: amount of red coloration in the pelvic fins (when compared with other Manonichthys species with red pelvic-fin markings). It is treated as a noun in apposition (Ref. 88961).   More on author: Gill.

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Indo-Pacific: Philippines. Known only from Apo Reef (Mindoro Province) and Coron Island (Palawan Province). It has been collected from outer reefs and lagoons in 2 to 33 m (Ref. 88961).

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 3.2 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 88961)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 28; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 15. Manonichthys scintilla is distinguished from congeners by the following characters in combination: scales to preopercular angle 3–4; second segmented pelvic-fin ray longest; no dark eye stripe on head; no dark bar on posterior body; pelvic fin with red to orange coloration indistinct and confined to distal part of fin; and caudal fin rounded with posterior margin truncate (Ref. 88961).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Species of Manonichthys facultatively enter large sponges. However, no large sponges were observed at the collection sites (Ref. 88961). Found in outer reefs and lagoons in 2-33 m (Ref 90102).
