Info

Few in situ photos exist of the Triple-Finned Blenny Enneapterygius rhabdotus and few are even aware of this species.
This blenny has four broad vertical dark brown stripes on the body and a broad dark brown stripe on the caudal fin.
The anal fin of Enneapterygius rhabdotus is black.

There is no sexual dimorphism in this species, however, males are darker than females during the mating season.

Habitat: rocky and coral reefs.

Naming: "rhabdotus" is the Latin form of the Greek word "rhabdotos" and refers to the four dark body stripes.
