I'm searching for the name of this fish. Do you know?
Possibly a Slingjaw Wrasse, Epibulus insidiator? FishBase Link: Fishbase - Slingjaw Wrasse
Must be it. A terminal male so I read. Thanks!
I photographed this species in the Red Sea indeed.
Saw these fish on drift from the lighthouse.
We have Hogfish (Lachnolaimus maximus) in Cozumel, and that may have been what you saw off the lighthouse. Slingjaw is native to the Red Sea & Pacific and would be a very special sighting here.
