Usually found swimming in schools, all swimming snout down just above the reef. Joint in the long dorsal spine (a bend near top can often be seen on close inspection, when animal is head down) distinguish it from the other local razorfish, Centriscus scutatus (Grooved Razorfish), which has an unjointed tail spine.
Occurrence describes how often the species is found on surveys within its distribution.
It is calculated as the % of reef sites surveyed by RLS divers across all the ecoregions in which the species has been observed
Abundance: Many (24 per transect)
Abundance is calculated as the average number of individuals recorded per RLS transect, where present.
