Threespot damselfish juvenile

Stegastes planifrons


Juveniles are a much brighter yellow. They have a few tiny blue spots on the head and upper body, including one on the upper iris. They have three distinctive black spots, one at the junction between the dorsal fin spines and the soft rays, one dorsally on the caudal peduncle, and a third smaller one just above the base of the pectoral fins. These tend to have a faint blue rim, and the pectoral spot is absent in very young juveniles, becoming more prominent as the juvenile grows.
