Wrasses (family Labridae
) are epibenthic, demersal, and water-column fishes found in coastal warm-temperate and tropical waters, usually near rocky and coral reefs of the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans.
Species of the family Labridae, which represents one of the largest and most speciose of all perciform families (comprising 82 genera and at least 600 species) are found in tropical and temperate coastal and continental shelf waters throughout the world (Westneat and Alfaro, 2005; Allen et al., 2006).
