Husbandry

Günther, 1862

Distribution
Eastern Atlantic: Cape Verde to Liberia.

Occurs in littoral and inshore coastal waters around rocks and over seagrass beds.

Short description
Compared to C. julis, atlantica have longer pelvic fins, more suborbital pores, and configuration of the lateral line tubules.

It is probably a protogynous hermaphrodite, as it shows two distinct color morphs (an initial phase and terminal phase males).

Synonyms:
Coris guineensis Bleeker, 1863
Coris hupferi Fischer, 1885
