- This fish mimics the Moorish Idol in colouring, and looks very similar to Heniochus diphreutes, with a disc-like body shape and two thick black vertical bars. It differs in that it's caudal and pectoral fins are yellow, the base colour of the body is iridescent silver and the face has little black and no yellow colouring. This fish also exhibits the elongated scythe-like dorsal fin.
- Not to be mistaken for Heniochus chrysostomus.
