Can you help identify this Maui fish?

I found this beautiful creature while snorkeling at Napili Bay, on Maui. I cannot for the life of me find out what this is. Can you help? I have more photos and I have video as well. It was in the shallow water just off shore. This is a great site - thank you!

Mary, that is a Rockmover Wrasse. Your's is between a juvenile phase and adult phase. You can see a picture of a slightly older one we took on the Big Island on our Facebook page here.

And here are pictures of both phases.
