Hemitaurichthys polylepis - Pyramid Butterflyfish.
At Molokini Crater, Maui, the Pyramid Butterfyfish are typically seen on scuba in the range of 20 to 80 feet, and usually directly below the dive boats. On Lana'i Island, I have seen Pyramind Butterflyfish on snorkel in the upwelling of the current at Shark Fin Rock.
I have still never seen one of these. Looks from the photo that you have to go down quite deep to see them?
Have been trying to find some of these. Maybe on my next trip!
