Identification

This fish looks very similar to the Gramma loreto, with only minor differences. The Brazilian Basslet is slightly smaller when adult to the Royal Gramma, the Brazilian Basslet is also endemic to Brazil. The colouration is slightly different, this Basslet's violet colour is not as vivid as the Royal Gramma and the fade in colour is more gradual. The jawline extends past the pupil and the first dorsal spine is shorter than the rest.
