The lane snapper (Lutjanus synagris) is silvery-pink to reddish in color, with short, irregular pink and yellow lines on its sides; diffuse black spot, about as large as the eye; the dorsal fin centered above the lateral line; outer margin of caudal fin blackish. Similar fish are the mutton snapper, Lutjanus analis, and the mangrove snapper, Lutjanus griseus.

Juveniles are found inshore over grass beds or shallow reefs. Adults are found offshore off wrecks and on reefs. The lane snapper is abundant in South Florida (specifically in the Florida Keys), extending down into the Caribbean and East into the Bahamas.
