Description Usually seen in or near caves and holes in the reef. Feeds mainly on small fishes (including @Pempheris@ sp.), also on stomatopods (@Pseudosquilla@ sp.) Morgans (1982, Ref. 6448). Preliminary data indicate that it spawns at any time of the year and matures (females?) at about 35 cm SL (Ref. 6448). Small juveniles mimic @Centropyge vrolikii@@ (Ref. 8631). [details]
