Citation: The Live Marine Resources of the Western Central Pacific, Vol.5(FAO, 2001)
Character: Body slightly elongate, and moderately compressed. Chin with 2 moderately long slender barbels, reaching beyond rear edge of preopercle. Snout moderate; dorsal profile of head convex; mouth small, maxilla nearly or just reaching a vertical at posterior nostril; posterior end of maxilla evenly convex; a single row of well-spaced, stout, conical teeth in jaws; no teeth on roof of mouth. First gill arch with 6 or 7 gill rakers on upper limb, 20 to 23 on lower limb (total 26 to 30). Two well-separated dorsal fins, the first with VIII spines, the second fin with 9 soft rays; first dorsal-fin spine very short; longest dorsal-fin spine 1.45 to 1.75 times in head length; last ray of second dorsal and anal fins slightly longer than penultimate ray; anal fin with I spine and 6 soft rays; pectoral-fin rays 15 to 17 (usually 16). Lateral-line scales 27 or 28; 3 rows of scales between dorsal fins; 8 or 9 rows of scales along upper part of caudal peduncle. Body brownish yellow to light red, the edges of the scales darker, shading to silvery white below; centres of scales of back with a pale blue to pearly spot; a small reddish brown spot on upper side of body of adults just below seventh and eighth lateral-line scales; faint iridescent blue lines extending dorsoposteriorly and ventroanteriorly from eye, and often a parallel one on cheek and snout below eye; second dorsal and anal fins with faint pale blue to pink lines, alternating with yellowish. 
Habitat: Occurs singly or in small groups, over muddy, sandy, rubble, or seagrass bottoms of lagoon and seaward reefs, usually below 20 m. 
Distribution: Widely distributed in tropical and subtropical waters of Indo-Pacific from Red Sea and East Africa to southern Japan and Lord Howe Island; throughout Micronesia. It is common in waters around Taiwan. 
Utility: Flesh is fairly good for human consumption.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 8; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines : 1; Anal soft rays : 7. Diagnosis: Pectoral rays 16 (rarely 15 or 17). Gill rakers 6-7 + 29-23 (total 26-30). Body depth 2.95-3.55 in SL; head length (HL) 2.9-3.25 in SL; snout length 1.75-2.1 in HL; barbel length 1.15-1.35 in HL; posterior end of maxilla evenly convex; longest dorsal spine 1.45-1.75 in HL; penultimate dorsal ray 1.05-1.25 in length of last dorsal ray; pectoral-fin length 1.25-1.4 in HL; pelvic-fin length 1.4-1.6 in HL. Body brownish yellow to light red (deeper-dwelling fish more red), the edges of the scales darker, shading to silvery white ventrally; adults with a small reddish brown spot on upper side of body just below seventh and eighth lateral-line scales; an indistinct narrow yellow stripe often visible above the lateral line (more evident in juveniles and subadults); dorsal body scales often with a pale blue or pearly spot; faint iridescent blue lines extending dorsoposteriorly and ventroanteriorly from eye, and often a parallel one on the cheek below eye; second dorsal and anal fins with faint pale blue or pink narrow bands alternating with pale yellow. Although Gloerfelt-Tarp and Kailola (1984: 213) reported that this species (as Parupeneus pleurospilus ) has a dark brown peritoneum, the Bishop Museum specimens have a pale peritoneum (Ref. 54393 ).
