Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Perciformes (Perch-likes) > Blenniidae (Combtooth blennies) > Salariinae
Etymology: Cirripectes: Latin, cirrus = curl fringe + Greek, pektos, -e, -on = made of several parts solidly united (Ref. 45335 ) ;   chelomatus: Specific epithet, derived from the Greek 'cheloma' meaning notch, referring to the shallow notch in the dorsal-fin membrane above the last dorsal spine.Date follows Eschmeyer (Ref. 26282 ) .

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

Marine; reef-associated; depth range 0 - 16 m (Ref. 529 ), usually 7 - 10 m (Ref. 90102 ).   Tropical; 10°S - 33°S

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

Western Pacific: off eastern Australia from Lady Musgrave Reef northward to Sir Charles Hardy Islands, as far north as Basilaki Islands, Papua New Guinea; as far south as Lord Howe Island; and eastward to Fiji and Tonga Islands.

Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m   ? , range 4 - ? cm
Max length : 9.4 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 529 )

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 12 - 13; Dorsal soft rays (total): 14-16; Anal spines : 2; Anal soft rays : 15 - 17; Vertebrae : 29 - 30. Diagnosis: Dorsal fin XII-XIII, 14-16 (usually XII, 15), attached to caudal fin, with shallow notch above last spine, first spine equal or about twice higher than second, higher in males; anal fin II, 15-17 (usually 15); pectoral rays 15; pelvic fin I, 4; caudal fin procurrent rays 10-14. Vertebrae 9-11 (usually 10) + 19-20; last pleural rib on 11th vertebral centrum, last epipleural rib on 15-18th. Body depth at anal-fin origin 3.3-3.5 in SL. LL, without scales and scalelike flaps; LL tubes 0-8 (usually 1-5), incomplete, series ends below 12th dorsal spine to 10th dorsal ray. Lower lip smooth mesially, plicate laterally. Upper lip crenulae 29-43. Gill rakers 20-28. Cephalic sensory pore system simple. Cirri: supraorbital 3-12 (rarely up to 23 or 93; usually 6-9); nasal 6-25 (rarely up to 82; usually less than 15); nuchal 22-45 (usually 27-32), in 4 groups with slightly expanded nuchal flap at bases of ventralmost cirri. Over all brown with red small spots; iris red; pectoral fins yellow; rugosities of anal spine dirty yellow (Ref. 529 , 90102 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit shallow rocky and coral reefs (Ref. 9710 ) commonly below 10 m (Ref. 90102 ). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205 ), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114 ). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114 ). Common depth minimum of 7 m reported from Ref. 9710 but that is maximum common depth in Ref. 529.

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Oviparous, distinct pairing (Ref. 205 ). Urogenital orifice of male genital papilla located basally between 2 closely appressed slender filaments on a fleshy swelling behind anus; testes bulbous with length equal to its width (Ref. 529 ).
