Indo-West Pacific: Japan to Indonesia, Sri Lanka and east to Papua New Guinea (Ref. 4859 ). Reported from Mentawai Islands (Ref. 27157 ). May consist of two separate species, one with an all-yellow tail and the other mostly gray tail (Ref. 48391 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits continental shelf reefs; not usually found around oceanic islands (Ref. 9710 ). Feeds on sponges, tunicates, and filamentous algae (Ref. 9710 ). Forms small groups. Frequently exported through the aquarium trade (Ref. 48391 ). Very close to Chaetodontoplus poliourus Randall & Rocha, 2009 with different colors on pelvic, dorsal and caudal fins. The two species coexist in several islands of Indonesia (Ref. 82330 ) including Lesser Sunda Islands, Molucca Islands, Halmahera, and Bird's Head Peninsula of West Papua (Ref. 90102 ).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 25.5 - 29, mean 28.7 °C (based on 1472 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.03090 (0.01359 - 0.07026), b=2.89 (2.70 - 3.08), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  2.7   ±0.00 se; based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100). Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   High . Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 74.2 [37.9, 119.1] mg/100g; Iron = 0.627 [0.385, 1.027] mg/100g; Protein = 18.2 [17.0, 19.3] %; Omega3 = 0.0986 [, ] g/100g; Selenium = 23.4 [13.2, 43.4] μg/100g; VitaminA = 84.4 [22.9, 291.9] μg/100g; Zinc = 1.58 [1.08, 2.27] mg/100g (wet weight);
