Anisochaetodon rafflesii – Chaetodon dahli – Chaetodon princeps – Chaetodon sebae

Widespread West Pacific and eastern Indian Ocean to Sri Lanka. Occurs on rich coastal reef flats with good hydroid growth. Adults nearly always in pairs. Identified by its greenish-yellow body and lattice-like pattern made by the dark scale outlines. Length to 18cm, usually 15cm.

The members of the family Chaetodontidae, popularly know as butterflyfishes, coralfishes and bannerfishes. Most species of butterflyfish live in the warm tropical seas of the Indo-Pacific (about 90%) with the remainder in the Atlantic. Only a few species are found in subtropical waters, bordering onto subtemperate zones. The butterflyfish have a highly compressed body in which the back is raised , forming an elongate-oval to near circular shape in some; a small protactible mouth with brush-like teeth in the jaws; a continuous dorsal fin with strong and sharp spines in the anterior section, followed by a large-surface soft part; an anal fin mirroring the soft part of the dorsal fin , headed by 3-5 strong spines, of which the 2nd is often greatly enlarged.
