Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. Males uniformly dark brown; fins dusky to black (Ref. 2798). Females light brown with crossbars on body; caudal base with dark bar; dorsal and caudal fins mottled, other fins clear (Ref. 2798); characterized further by having upper 5-6 pectoral rays partly free of membrane; rounded caudal fin; longitudinal scale series 28-32; predorsal scales 9-13, not reaching rear margin of preopercle; cheek, opercle, pectoral fin base and prepelvic area without scales; ctenoid body scales, becoming cycloid on head and anterior body (short distance anterior to first dorsal fin); depressed head, width greater than depth; depth of body 4.6-5.9 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits rock pools of intertidal zone, rocky shores and mangrove habitat (Ref. 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 24.2 - 29.3, mean 28.3 (based on 3126 cells; Ref. 115970).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00631 (0.00286 - 0.01390), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (11 of 100) .
