Family Labridae - Wrasses

Note: Fishes in this family usually have three colour patterns, each associated with a major life history stage - the juvenile phase, the initial phase (female), and the terminal phase (male). Where images were available, I have shown the initial phase on the left and the terminal phase on the right in the table below.
