Dorsal spines (total): 12 - 14; Dorsal soft rays (total): 17-20; Anal spines : 3; Anal soft rays : 7 - 8. This species is distinguished by the following characters: chin with 6 pores, no median pit; gill rakers on first gill arch 9-11 + 1 + 20-23 = 29-34; Dorsal fin with XII-XIV (usually XIII),17-20 with 3rd or 4th spines longest; lips fleshy, greatly swollen with age; scales ctenoid (rough to touch); lateral line tubed scales about 55-65; body depth 2.6-2.9 in SL; caudal fin rounded in juveniles, truncate in adults. Colour: juveniles with connected black blotches and spots that gradually break up into horizontal stripes; pectoral fins black in juveniles becoming uniform yellow in adults; tail spotted with age; adults with 6 to 12 broad dark brown, blue-brown or black stripes that persist on the belly and join horizontally across the nape and snout with anterior part of pale interspaces yellow forming 2 bright yellow stripes across interorbital and 2 around snout; eye usually yellow; fins yellow with black margins to vertical fins and black spots, pectoral fins uniform yellow with red-brown, chocolate, or blackish base, pelvic fins yellow with base red-brown, scarlet, or dark brown (Ref. 47695 , 90102 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits coral reefs and inshore rocky reefs (Ref. 30573 ). Juveniles solitary, inhabits clear shallow protected lagoon; adults may be solitary or occur in aggregations (Ref. 37816 ). by handline and spear. Marketed fresh, a small quantity is salted (Ref. 47695 ).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 26.1 - 29.3, mean 28.5 °C (based on 2234 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01380 (0.00670 - 0.02842), b=3.00 (2.83 - 3.17), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.9   ±0.6 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  High vulnerability (55 of 100). Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 26.6 [10.3, 49.4] mg/100g; Iron = 0.473 [0.248, 0.897] mg/100g; Protein = 19.4 [17.5, 21.2] %; Omega3 = 0.111 [0.061, 0.186] g/100g; Selenium = 31.9 [18.0, 54.3] μg/100g; VitaminA = 70.3 [26.5, 183.9] μg/100g; Zinc = 1.05 [0.74, 1.52] mg/100g (wet weight);
