Very special thanks for the first photos of Pseudolabrus gayi to Dr. Alejandro Perez Matus, a marine biologist from Chile.
This wrasse is found in the Southeast Pacific and is known only from Islas Juan Fernandez and Isla San Felix, Chile.
Gay´s wrasse is a small species, to about 103 mm SL and inhabits rocky reefs in shallow water, but may occur in depths down to 100 meters.
