Abudefduf saxatilis is a member of the pomacentridae family that includes both the damselfishes and anemonefishes. This family is abundant in the tropical and warm temperate waters of the world. The Seargeant major is a small, laterally compressed rounded fish. There is a single nostril on either side of the snout distinguishing it from the butterflyfishes and angelfishes. It has a small, oblique terminal mouth. The upper part of the body is yellowish with 5 vertical black bars. Sometimes a faint sixth bar can be present. There is a black spot at the upper base of the pectoral fin.
