Widespread Indo-West Pacific, but replaced in Red Sea by Cheilinus quinquecinctus. Coastal and inner reefs. Young common on silty reefs, usually along edges with algae-rubble and sand. Small juveniles often mistaken for adult Wetmorella spp because of their thin vertical white barring. Large individuals develop bright red areas and males have extended caudal fin lobes. Length to 35cm.
