Info

This small blenny is mainly found on live coral surfaces, terminal males are often found in holes, also typically in living coral heads.
Emblemariopsis leptocirris appears to be the most common glass blenny within its range (base 500 underwater photos.
The identification of this glass blenny is clearly facilitated by the presence of cirrus, as the other species with a cirrus there are the rare (and conspicuous underwater) greenish-blue-golden Emblemariopsis ruetzleri and the rare Emblemariopsis dianae, which occurs only on the middle shelf of Belize and on the Bay Islands of Honduras.

The numerous photos of Emblemariopsis leptocirris show variation in the height of the first dorsal-fin spine in the IP, usually with size, as well as in the pectoral-fin ground pattern and the skull pattern, which varies in the intensities and shadings of the different bands.
