Etymology: dabra: Named for David Winterbottom and Bradley Hubley, an arbitrary combination of letters, 'dabra'. More on author: Winterbottom.
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Marine; reef-associated; depth range 0 - 24 m (Ref. 55341). Tropical
Western Pacific: currently known only from Palau.
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 1.9 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 55341); 1.8 cm SL (female)
(total): 6 - 7;
soft rays: 7 - 9. Distinguished from its congeners in having a strong dark bar on the body, beginning just anterior to the origin of the first dorsal fin and passing ventrally just behind the base of the pectoral fin; about equal in width to the eye diameter. It has a dark anteroventrally-directed wedge-shaped bar from the eye to the jaws; a similar, but better developed postero-ventrally-directed bar from the eye to the vicinity of the vertical limb of the preopercle; a small dark blotch spot or bar on the anteroventral margin of the opercle. There is a black blotch at the middle length of the upper pectoral fin rays (Ref. 55341).
