Distinguishing features

"A golden-yellow, greyish or greenish combtooth blenny with a black spot around anus, a narrow dark margin on the dorsal fin, and long outer caudal-fin rays in adults. When swimming off the bottom, they often school amongst basslets of Fusilier Damsels, mimicing their swimming behaviour." (Dianne J.
