Distinguishing features

Distinguishing features still need to be specified.


  • Size data has not been obtained.

Depth range

  • Depth range data is not yet available.



There is a single record of this species in ALA (accessed 2 Nov 2021) within the Lizard Island area, inshore of Lizard Island. It has never been recorded reliably from the Lizard Island Group or any coral reef areas nearby.

The record at Lizard Island by Richardson et al (2018) is dubious as there is no specimen of photograph to verify.
