Abstract

A brief review of mimicry in marine fishes is followed by the example of the subadult of the labrid fish Novaculoides macrolepidotus believed to be a mimic of venomous scorpaeniform fishes of the genus Ablabys. In addition to the resemblance in form and colour to species of Ablabys, the subadult of this labrid fish mimics Ablabys behavior by showing a strong reluctance to move and by holding its dorsal fin fully erect.
