Sideburn wrasse

The Sideburn wrasse lives in the demersal, marine environment.

Sideburn wrasse on the right, was previously only reported from Durban (South Africa) to the eastern Mediterranean. Cryptic wrasses are seldom seen by divers - they are well camouflaged and move slowly amongst weed or other areas of good cover. More
