Lethrinus xanthochilus Klunzinger, 1870
Yellowlip emperor

Lethrinus xanthochilus has been observed by Christina Sylvester on the lagoon side of Kwajalein Island. The red spot at the base of the pectoral fin and yellowish upper lip are quick ways to distinguish them from other species of Lethrinus found at Kwajalein. They are reported to reach about 70cm.
