Saurida nebulosa (Weber, 1913)

    This lizardfish inhabits silty sand or mud bottoms and is not seen on reefs. Like others of its genus it has three blackish spots posteriorily on the back. Also, there are about nine blackish blotches on the side. The most distinctive character, however, is the odd pattern of irregular white marks on the side. To about 8 in. Indo-Pacific.
