Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 6 - 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. Characterized by mottled brown body color; side of body with a pair of oblique brown bands, below first dorsal fin and below posterior of second dorsal fin; lower half side of body with 6-7 rectangular brown blotches; numerous small brown spots on snout, interorbital and cheek; upper 4-5 pectoral rays branched to base, tips membrane-free; rounded caudal fin; longitudinal scale series 36-38; predorsal scales 15-20, reaching midway between rear edge of preopercle and posterior edge of eye; cheek and operculum without scales; ctenoid body scales, becoming cycloid on abdomen, breast and nape; depressed head, width greater than depth; depth of body 4.3-4.7 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits clear coastal reef flats, intertidal to about 5 meters depth (Ref. 48637). Benthic in tidepools and tidal flats; also from seaward reefs (Ref. 58302).

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=0.00589 (0.00266 - 0.01303), b=3.12 (2.93 - 3.31), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.6 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 to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
