BICOLOR CHUB color
Kyphosus hawaiiensis Sakai & Nakabo, 2004
The common Gray Chub (Kyphosus sandwicensis)
sometimes displays yellow or white patches, and a few individuals
are entirely yellow, but I had never seen a similar color variation in
the endemic Hawaiian Bicolor Chub until Renae Shepler sent me the above
photo of one she saw while snorkeling at Hideaways Beach on Kauai in August
of 2018. There's always something new under the sea. Thanks Renae!
