Common on rocky shores or within tidepools where it grazes upon algae.  A pair of large 'horns' are located above and behind the eyes, but there is no raised flap of skin, or nuchal crest, behind them as seen on the Zebra Blenny. Frequently seen above water on exposed reefs at night.   Attains 6 inches.  Endemic to Hawaii.
