The Azure Demoiselle or Azure Damselfish is native to tropical reefs of the eastern Indian Ocean and the western Pacific. As its scientific name indicates, it is "half blue", with the lower third and rear golden yellow or orange. It grows to 7cm long. The intensity of colour varies, especially the blue from pale blue to dark purple, with the fish's level of stress.

It can look similar to the related Goldtail Damsel and to the slimmer Goldbelly and Neon Damsels among others but there are differences in the proportion and location of blue and yellow parts.
