Very special thanks for the first photos of Halichoeres papilionaceus to Prof. Dr. Arthur R. Bos,The American University in Cairo, Egypt and Department of Marine Zoology NATURALIS Biodiversity Center, Leiden, Netherlands and Jim Greenfield, UK.

Cheilodipterus nigrotaeniatus is apparently a Batesian mimic of the saber-toothed blenny Meiacanthus grammistes.
