Info

Gill, Bogorodsky & Mal, 2013

Very special thnaks for the first photo of Acanthoplesiops cappuccino to Dr. S.V.Bogorodsky.

The Red Sea spiny basslet was discovered 0f 17 meters from the entrance of Sharm Obhur, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia d on a small reef platform (about 3 x 1 m), with small corals on sand, on steep coral reef slop.

The coral slope had mixed patches of corals and caves and extended down to a
depth of 30 m, becoming a sandy slope below this depth.

The specific epithet alludes to the various brown and white markings reminiscent of a cappuccino.
