What should "strong keels on the dorsal and ventral surfaces of the caudal peduncle" look like? The caudal peduncle on the L. exiguus pic on fishbase looks just like the L. ornatus pics on fishbase and in the East Indies book.
For me, the lack of "pale blue lines radiating from eye and one descending from nape" pushes the ID towards L. exiguus, unless I'm missing something regarding the caudal peduncle keels. If it really is L. ornatus, and the East Indies book pic is correct, then there are likely a lot of mis-IDs out there on the net, especially from Lembeh.
