Trunk black; the forehead, snout, breast, and caudal fin yellow; side of the head mostly blue with yellow spots; a wide white bar just behind the head, running from the below the forehead to the base of the pectoral fin; dorsal and anal fins with narrow yellowish to bluish white margin.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits coastal reefs and open bottoms with rock , coral, sponge, or seawhip outcrops to depths greater than 3 5 m (Ref. 9710). Juveniles often among sponges under jetties; adults often in pairs, generally in deeper water (Ref. 9710). Feeds on sponges and tunicates. Solitary or forms pairs or small groups. Occasionally exported through the aquarium trade (Ref. 48391).

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=0.03020 (0.01487 - 0.06134), b=2.89 (2.71 - 3.07), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.00 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):  Low to moderate vulnerability (30 of 100) .
