Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following characters: dark occipital spot, more well-developed in males and in preservation; an orange spot behind the eye in life; cephalic sensory-pore system pattern Group I (complete); dorsal/anal formula often 9/8; eye diameter 26.7-34.4% HL; caudal-peduncle depth 10.9-12.4% SL; 4th pelvic-fin ray with short, thick branches bound together by membranes (Ref. 79588).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits rocky caverns or coral heads on sand seen most frequently at depths of about 815 m on either live coral (frequently faviids) or on rocky surfaces covered with coralline algae patches (Ref. 79588).
