Photo of Animalia: species: Lethrinus ornatus cf. (Lizard Island Field Guide)

This fish at Big Vicki's Reef, Lizard Island, may or may not be Lethrinus ornatus.

It has just a hint of a streak on the preoperculum and a dull red margin on the operculum. Lethrinus ornatus has bright red streaks in these positions, and also has more stripes on the side than this individual.
