The hawkfish anthias (Serranocirrhitus latus), also known as the hawk anthias, fathead anthias, or sunburst anthias, is a small, colorful species of marine fish in the subfamily Anthiadinae. It is the only member of the genus Serranocirrhitus. Compared to most members of Anthiinae, it is relatively thickset. It reaches 13 cm (5.1 in) in length, and is orange-yellow on the upper part of its body and deep pink on the lower part. It is found at coral reefs at depths of 15–70 m (49–230 ft) in the West Pacific, ranging from Indonesia to southern Japan and Tonga. In the wild, the fish's diet consists mainly of zooplankton.
