Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Found over a wide range of habitats like seagrass beds and outer reef slopes (Ref. 5213); in the South China Sea, it is also found on mud bottoms. Feeds on small fishes and crustaceans (mainly stomatopods and crabs). Sexual transition from female to male occurs between 35-45 cm, but not all females change sex. @E. chlorostigma@ is closely related and very similar to @E. polylepis@ and @E. gabriellae@ which seem to replace it in the northwestern Indian Ocean. [details]
