Longfin Emperor (Lethrinus Erythropterus) 1

This usually timid Longfin Emperor (Lethrinus Erythropterus) came just close enough to get a reasonable photo.
All of the distinguishing features of this species can be clearly seen in this photo ie:

Rusty/brown overall colour
Double white bars on the caudal peduncle
Red line from the eye to the snout
Red marking at the base of the pectoral fin
Yellowish markings around the face area
