Chrysiptera brownriggii (Bennett, 1828)
Surge damsel

These damsels occur in two very different color forms that are apparently not related to maturity or sexual dimorphism. They tend to live in shallow surge channels on the seaward reef, often in surgy areas. Maximum reported length is about 8cm.

The individual below is from Stan Jazwinski.
