Very special thanks for the first photos of the New Zealand spotty, the photo of the female is from Paddy Ryan, and the photo of the male was provided from Malcolm Francis,Wellington, New Zealand.
The New Zealand spotty occurs throughout New Zealand, including Stewart Island but not recorded at Snares Island, Auckland Island or Three Kings Islands.
The wrasse is abundant on rocky reefs and estuaries and it occurs mainly in shallow water but recorded to depths of about 145 meters.
Prey: small bivalve molluscs, grapsid crabs and hermit crabs.
