Chlidichthys cacatuoides Gill & Randall, 1994: 13  , figs. 2 and 3 (type locality: Sawda Island, Al Hallaniyah Islands, Oman); Gill & Edwards, 2004: 11, figs. 1 c, 2 c and 5, pl. 1 E (description, synonymy, distribution, colour photo).

This species was described by Gill and Randall (1994) on the basis of three specimens collected in 21 m on the edge of rocky bottom and adjacent rubble in the Hallaniyah Islands, southern Oman. Two specimens of this species were captured in the Socotra Archipelago, one in 15–20 m at Socotra Island, and the other in 27–29 m at Darsa Island. Considering these records, the species appears to have a preference for deeper habitats (15–30 m), e.g. at lower reef slopes and bases. The specimens agree well with the original description, and were used in a subsequent description of the species by Gill and Edwards (2004).
