Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription This species may be seen in a variety of habitats ranging from rich coral reefs to weed and rubble covered areas. It is found singly, in pairs, and in aggregations that roam over large distances in search of food. Feeds mainly by tearing pieces from polychaetes, sea anemones, coral polyps, and algae (Ref. 1602). [details]
