Pseudocoris yamashiroi (Schmidt, 1931)
Smalltail wrasse

This species is rare at Kwajalein. The first shot is an old adult male from a deep lagoon Halimeda patch.

These are earlier phases observed by Stan Jazwinski on the seaward reef at a depth of about 8m.

Numerous juveniles recently settled on the seaward reef slope were photographed by Stan Jazwinski.
