Etymology: Gymnothorax: Greek, gymnos = naked + Greek, thorax, -akos = breast (Ref. 45335 ) .  More on authors: Bloch & Schneider .

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Marine; brackish; reef-associated; depth range 1 - 50 m (Ref. 90102 ).   Tropical

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Indo-Pacific: Red Sea (Ref. 33390 ) and East Africa to Papua New Guinea (Ref. 9710 ), north to southern Japan, south to Australia.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m   ?   range ? - ? cm
Max length : 300 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 9710 )

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 0; Anal spines : 0; Anal soft rays : 0; Vertebrae : 138 - 144. Basically white with black blotches and interspaces forming a honeycomb pattern (Ref. 30404 , 48635 ). Some individuals have a near black overall appearance (Ref. 48635 ). Blotches variable between individuals and size, often in relation to habitat - those in clear coral reefs usually have proportionally less black than those found in turbid waters (Ref. 30404 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits reef flats and outer reef slopes of continental reefs (Ref. 9710 ). One of the two largest of Indo-Pacific morays. Often in holes with cleaner wrasses or shrimps (Ref. 48635 ). Feeds on cephalopods and small fishes (Ref. 30573 ). Large adults may be aggressive (Ref. 9710 ). Minimum depth reported taken from Ref. 30573.
