Identification

Confidence: moderate

The proper name for this species may be either S. margaritiferus or S. fuscescens. FishBase considers the Philippine population to be S. fuscescens whereas Reef Fishes of the East Indies uses S. margaritiferus, reserving S. fuscescens for more northerly populations. More studies are needed to resolve the issue.
