Info

Wellington, 1992

Very special thanks for the first photo of Xyrichtys victori to Dr. Gerry R. Allen, he has taken this photo in the Galapagos Islands.

This species is endemic to the Eastern Pacific, and is found only in the Galápagos and Cocos Islands.

The Galapagos razorfish inhabits open sand slopes to depths of 25 m, but usually below 10 m depth. In the Galápagos, adults often share habitat with the Garden Eel Heteroconger klausewitzi.
