Max length : 12.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 90102)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 5; Dorsal soft rays (total): 18-21; Anal soft rays: 18 - 21. This species usually with prominent filamentous appendages along the ventral surface of the snout and may also have shorter appendages along the dorsal surface. Some individuals have 'hairy' filamentous appendages covering head, body and fins. Body with variable shades of brown, red and green, often with white mottling (Ref. 90102).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in algal/rubble reefs and sandy bottoms, often at depths below 10 m (Ref. 90102). Mostly pelagic until they settle on the substrate for breeding (Ref. 48635).
