Description

The Camouflage Grouper is a large pale fish with large irregular dark blotches and small dark spots forming distinct diagonal bands on the body. There is a large dark spot on the tail stem. The Camouflage Grouper is often confused with the Flowery Cod (Epinephelus fuscoguttatus). The Camouflage Grouper has more distinct oblique bands, a larger spot on the tail stem and fewer pectoral fin rays (16 to 17 compared with 18 to 20).... source: OZ Animals
