Pseudojuloides polackorum is described from the east coastof South Africa and from near Mombasa, Kenya, and from Madagaskar (Gerry R. Allen)
These fishes form groups of small fast-swimming wrasses, typically found on deeper slopes and in 50 habitats dominated by rubble rather than live coral.
The wrasse was named after Dennis Pollack and his wife, Sandy from www.fishwisepro.com.
