Centropyge heraldi Woods & Schultz, 1953
Herald's angelfish

This species is common in a couple of different habitats at Kwajalein: on the tops and sides of some lagoon pinnacles, and on the seaward slope deeper than about 20m. On pinnacles, they often share the same areas with Centropyge flavissima, although we have not seen any clear hybrids between the two species.

Below is a juvenile.

Although usually nearly all yellow, a few Centropyge heraldi have some coloration on the rear portion of their dorsal and anal fins.
