Labrids inhabit tropical marine and temperate waters around the world, and are most common in shallow water habitats such as coral reefs, rocky reefs, sand, grass, and algae.

species to be described from the labrids, the first being Haliotrema bodiani Yamaguti, 1968 from Bodianus albotaeniatus (Valenciennes), previously designated as B. bilunulatus (Lacépède).

BMC Evolutionary Biology

Generalized per-comorph fishes, from which the cichlids and labrids were derived, have upper and lower "pharyngeal jaws" within the throat, which function chiefly to transport food into the esophagus, whereas the "oral jaws" have a task of both collecting and manipulating (crushing and processing) food.

Tautog released at manmade structures also displayed high site-utili­ zation patterns, but several tautog peri­ odically moved 2-10.2 km away from these sites over featureless bottom, a known deterrent to emigration for large temperate labrids in other waters.

(labrids), and seabasses. A more detailed discussion of this strategy can be found in Warner (1975). In protandric hermaphrodites, the fish are first males, then females; this is more common in porgies (sparids), flatheads (platycephalids) , hagfishes (myxinids), and lightfishes (gonostomatids).
