Oxycheilinus digrammus (Lacepède, 1801)
Cheeklined wrasse

This common species can be seen on lagoon, pinnacle and seaward reefs. It varies somewhat in color.

Immediately after taking the photo below, the fish came in and bit front of the camera.

Subadult individual among gorgonians on the seaward reef.

More juveniles.

These last two are probably also this species, although the green dots on the last one seem rather peculiar.
