Dorsal-fin rays VI-I,10; anal-fin rays I,9; pectoral-fin rays 15; scales in longitudinal series 47; median predorsal scales 19; body scales entirely cycloid, including abdomen, and prepelvic region; pectoral-fin base and head naked except side of nape and predorsal region; preopercular-canal pore N absent; gill opening extending forward to a vertical at posterior edge of preopercle; seventh and eighth anal-fin rays prolonged, resulting in distinctly pointed posterior anal-fin profile; longest anal-fin rays 1.1 in HL; caudal fin rounded, longer than head, 3.1 in SL; pelvic fins relatively short, not reaching posteriorly to anus, 4.7 in SL; color of female generally golden brown with six faint dark bars from nape to caudal-fin base, interspersed with yellowish, slightly narrower interspaces; both dorsal fins with vertical, dark-edged orange markings between each spine and ray, interrupted to form spots on outer half of fin; second dorsal fin with pale blue submarginal stripe; anal fin dusky yellow brown, except posteriormost portion (encompassing last three rays) bright yellow; caudal fin is yellow to brownish with longitudinal blue streak between most rays of middle portion; pelvic-fin rays are dusky brownish; male (not collected, but presumed to be the same species) with 4 oblique and narrow orange bands (usually wavy and interrupted) on the cheek and opercle and have more vivid dark bars on body (Ref. 116711).

Βιολογία     Γλωσσάρι (π.χ. epibenthic)

The area of collection consists of moderately sloped (ca.20 degrees) mud substratum, where the slope begins in approximately 1.5 m depth and flattens out at about 18 m. The featureless bottom have numerous burrows occupied by a variety of fishes and invertebrates, including Cryptocentrus epakros. Three individuals (the female holotype, a presumed male, and another female) were observed in 12.5-15.0 m depth. Each individual was invariably associated with an unidentified alpheid shrimp (colour overall is pale greyish with bright pink legs and a pink claw with a bluish tip). The female holotype was in close proximity (about 30 cm) to the presumed male, which occupied a separate burrow (Ref. 116711).
