Parupeneus cyclostomus (Lacepède, 1801)
Normally this goatfish is bluish with a yellow saddle in front of the tail fin. An all-yellow color variant is common in the Indo-Pacific but very rare in Hawaii. This is one of the very few photos of the yellow morph in Hawaii, taken by Jason Crowder off Oahu.
