Character: Dorsal fin with IX spines and 14 to 16 rays; anal fin with III spines and 9 rays; pectoral-fin rays 17 to 19, rarely 19; pectoral fins clearly longer than pelvic fins, pectoral-fin length contained 1.3 to 1.6 times in head length; pelvic fins not reaching anus, their length contained 1.9 to 2.2 times in head length; caudal fin rounded. Lateral-body scales ctenoid, without auxiliary scales; lateral-line scales 47 to 53; lateral-scale series 84 to 103. 
Habitat: Perhaps the most common species of grouper on Indo-Pacific coral reefs below 40 m; specimens have been collected in depths of 15 to 108 m. It appears that nothing is known of the biology of this species. 
Distribution: Indo-Pacific from Pinda, Mozambique (15ºS) to French Polynesia and the Pitcairn Group; in the western Pacific, C. spiloparaea ranges from the Ryukyu Islands of Japan to Heron Island at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef. Except for the 
Utility: Because of its small size and relatively deep habitat, this grouper is of little commercial importance.
