Epibulus insidiator. Rarely seen in the trade with subadults and females usually brown while some other females are yellow. Males are usually dark brown with green edges on its scales, possible a yellow bar on its side, and/or a gray head with a black stripe behind the eye. Juveniles spend most of their time among coral branches. Sometimes adults will curl up with their tail towards their head and accompany floating debris to get to adjacent islands. It can change its color to match that of the debris. Colors vary depending upon the age of the specimen, collection areas, and breeding timeframes.
