Scorpaenodes evides (Jordan and Thompson, 1914)
Common throughout the Solitary Islands Marine Park. Recorded from the Indo-West and Central Pacific. In Australia it is known from the central coast of Western Australia, around the tropical north of the country and south to the southern coast of New South Wales.
Frequents rocky reef and boulder areas in depths from 2 to 40m.
Colouration may vary depending upon substrate. This species may be overlooked due to its small size and habit of frequenting small caves, crevices and overhangs, often upside down. Grows to 11cm.
