Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7-8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8 - 9. Diagnosis: frontal ridge behind the orbits slopes steeply into a wide interorbital trench anteromedially, and into postorbital trenches laterally; posterior nasal opening separate from anterior margin of eye; elongate first dorsal spines absent; fifth pelvic fin ray branched once dichotomously; body red-orange with four white dorsolateral spots between caudal region and origin of second dorsal; no white ventrolateral spots; facial pattern with two thin, diffuse white diagonal lines under orbit and one over preopercle (Ref. 57688).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits clear lagoon and seaward reefs; within crevices and caves of mostly dead coral rock and sandy rubble bottom (Ref. 9710, 57688). Solitary (Ref. 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00412 - 0.01928), b=3.08 (2.91 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
