Naso minor (Cuvier, 1829)
Slender unicornfish

These unicornfish are characterized by the black spot on the caudal peduncle and a yellowish tail fin. They are either rare at Kwajalein, or have not previously been recognized. This individual was part of a group of four originally spotted on the seaward reef by Jeremy Owens. The photos are from Stan Jazwinski.
