Very special thanks for the first photo of the beautiful and conspicuous Novaculops halsteadi to Scott & Jeanette Johnson from Kwajalein Underwater.
This photo was taken at Marshall Islands, Lagoon Halimeda, Kwajalein Atoll.

Novaculops halsteadi is very rare and found solitary or in small groups near reefs in sand-rubble bottoms and feed on small benthic invertebrates.
