      Reminds me a lot of Sargocentron spiniferum, though the head doesn't seem elongated enough. Could be the angle/lighting?

      Also S. caudimaculatum, though most show more white in the tail. Any input @Kakapo?

      Thanks, I'm not convinced by spiniferum, not only head shape but also head pattenrs seems wrong. S. caudimaculatum looks like a better match, there are some pics in the net with a "not-so-white" caudal peduncle. I will let as Sargocentron caudimaculatum with some reserves
