Identification This species has not been imported or photographed - it's something of a mystery. The holotype was supposed to have been lost but it appears it is in the Philadelphia Academy of Science collection. There's not much that can be gleened from it save for the fact that there would appear to be a band across the back like C. rabauti and C. zygatus, but like C. zygatus there looks to be a break in the band just below the dorsal spine. Also the holotype measures just 27.4 mm SL making it either a small species or perhaps a juvenile fish. The short chunky body shape also points towards being a juvenile.
