This flasher wrasse from southern Indonesia, which was found between 15 and 21 metres, is closely related to P. angulatus from the Phillipines and northern Borneo.  A stunning fish with a few distinguishing features, ranging from a lack of filamentous extensions of the dorsal fin rays to colour pattern differences, that set it apart from other flasher wrasse.
