Caracanthus unipinna (Gray, 1831)
Pygmy croucher

These photos by Christina Sylvester appear to show Caracanthus unipinna, which is reported to differ from Caracanthus maculatus by its darker color and longer tubercles. It is difficult to get a camera in between the branches of corals where these fish live.
