Males of this species are characterized by a rusty, reddish patch on the head. It is sympatric with P. sp. "Perspicax Yellow Breast" at Pombo Reef. The geographical variant at Ndumbi Reef is the one exported for the aquarium hobby. Multiple sources document a lack of aggression in the wild; however, this does not seem to be the case in captivity. In the wild, they feed by nibbling from the algal mat in a manner similar to Labidochromis spp.
