Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Usually found in shallow water (less than 10 m), however, Kyushin et al. (1977, Ref. 6894) reported specimens caught on a vertical longline at depths of 45 to 62 m. Feeds exclusively on fishes (parrotfishes, wrasses, holocentrids, acanthurids, a triggerfish, and a juvenile @Sphyraena@) (Ref. 6448). Also caught with trolling and benthic longlines. [details]
