Etymology: Cirrhilabrus: Latin, cirrus = curl fringe + Greek, labros = furious (Ref. 45335). More on author: Bleeker.
Environment / Climate / Range
Marine; reef-associated; depth range 5 - 35 m (Ref. 90102). Tropical
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 11.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 48636)
soft rays: 9. Highly variable. Nuptial color can change from normal in seconds. Usually nuptial colors are shown during spawning, but in Tomini Bay it is almost permanent, possibly because of the similar C. aurantidorsalis that often mixes with this species. The eye is bright red and males usually show a dark shading or band along the end of the gill cover (Ref. 48636).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01480 (0.00663 - 0.03305), b=2.94 (2.74 - 3.14), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (21 of 100) .
