Very special thanks for the first two photos of the beautiful Bodianus neopercularis to Scott & Jeanette Johnson from Kwajalein Underwater.
The photos of the endemic species were taken at Marshall Islands, Kwajalein Atoll, Ennubuj Island.
This wrasse was found on vertical drop-offs at depths of about 50 meters.
Remark: May be confused with Bodianus opercularis, but Bodianus neopercularis is a separate species
