Allen & Erdmann, 2006
Very special thanks for the first two photos of Halichoeres insularis to Dr. Gerry R. Allen from Australia.
He has taken these photos at Cenderawasih Bay, Indonesia, where Cirrhilabrus cenderawasih is endemic.
The wrasse is found in a depht from 25-75 meters inn sheltered seaward reefs, primarily on the inner and eastern portions of the Cenderawasih Bay on rubble substrates.
Cirrhilabrus cenderawasih is occasionally collected for the aquarium trade.
