Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Juveniles are encountered under ledges, or in holes of outer lagoon patch reefs or semi-protected areas of exposed channels and outer reef flats. Subadults move to reef front holes and surge channels. Large adults inhabit ledges and caves in areas of rich coral growth on clear lagoon, channel, or seaward reefs. Feeds on sponges and other encrusting organisms (Ref. 6113). [details]
