Kuhlia sandvicensis (Steindachner, 1876)
This fish is described in both my Hawaii fish books and is illustrated with a photo of juveniles in a tidepool. Here is a better photo, taken at Honuapo (Whittington Beach Park), Hawai`i, in about 1 ft of water. An alternate name for this fish is Reticulated Flagtail.
