Info

Ramsay & Ogilby, 1888

Eupetrichthys angustipes is a small slender wrasse with a variable colour pattern - body greyish, maroon, brownish to dark green above, abruptly pale below with 5 dark broad angled bands on the sides, and irregular dark spots on the head.
Endemic to temperate waters of southern Australia, from northern New South Wales to the Houtman Abrolhos (Western Australia), including northern Tasmania.

The Snakeskin Wrasse is a common and widespread inhabitant of sheltered sandy areas near reefs and boulders on the east coast, on algal-covered reefs on the west coast, in depths of 1-40 m. It is rare in the Bass Strait region.

Snakeskin wrasses swim in short bursts close to the bottom, head up with a bobbing motion. When resting, they often lie in a curled position, or on their sides, lifting their heads off the bottom.
