I took this picture in Hawaii in Jan/Feb this year. I ordered books by Hoover and Humann and have begun trying to ID the fish in all the photos I took. However, I can't seem to ID this guy. As close as I can come is the inital phase of a Star-Eye Parrotfish. Any other ideas?
It appears to be the Star-Eye Parrotfish on page 93 of the Hoover "Hawaii's Fishes" book.
Many of the pics in the Hoover book are not real clear or colorful.
It is difficult to tell if it is in the "initial" or "terminal" phase. My best guess is the "initial" phase.
