    The Humphead wrasse Cheilinus undulatus (Riippell, 1835), also known as Napoleon wrasse, is the biggest member of the family Labridae and a giant among reef fishes. Morphometric and meristic measurements are given. C. undulatus is protogynous; its natural history renders it highly vulnerable to fishing pressure. With its increasing demand in the LRFFT, there is urgent need to protect this fish by law.
