Distribution: Relatively common in the Solitary Islands Marine Park, and distributed throughout all states of Australia with the exception of the Northern Territory.
Ecological Notes: Frequent a variety of habitats but mostly nocturnal and live in crevices and holes in coral and rocky reef.
Additional Notes: May be recognised by the relatively long, yellowish rostrum. Similar R. durbanensis has a much more lined pattern and has a white stripe rather than the yellow marking on the rostrum. Typically grow to around 40 mm.
