Looks like a triggerfish of some sort but not really fitting the profile of any I've been able to find so far. Any suggestions?
My best guess so far would be a female Bridled Triggerfish (Sufflamen fraenatum) though not really sure.
It looks like a Whitespotted Filefish, Cantherhines dumerilii. Adult males have orange peduncle (base of tail) spines. Here's a link to FishBase: http://fishbase.us/summary/SpeciesSummary.php?id=5836
That's it, thank you! Now I can finish that REEF survey.
