Both the Blonde Naso Tang, and its close cousin the Naso Tang N. literatus are called the Orangespine Unicornfish. This comes from the pair of spines surrounded by a bright orange area on either side of the caudal peduncle. These are some of the most attractive and distinctive of the unicornfish with strong patterning and color accents. The Blonde Naso Tang, originating from the Red Sea and Indian Ocean is more rare as it is not quite as widespread as its very similar counterpart the Naso Tang, which has a black dorsal fin rather than yellow and is found in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean.
