Chrysiptera unimaculata, Red Sea, Photo: Graham Edgar
Dusky yellow body with fine blue lines on head across eye, an ocellus on rear dorsal fin and upper tail base, sometimes a second ocellus on dorsal fin further up the back. Almost identical to the dusky yellow form of Chrysiptera brownriggii (Surge Damselfish), although that species has the rear eye-spot further back on tail (rather than immediately behind dorsal fin). Length to 10 cm.
