Cephalic sensory pore complex. Cirri, nuchal 30, supraorbital 13, nasal 10; ventralmost nuchal cirri borne on greatly enlarged nuchal flap; cirri above flaps have no membranous ridge connection at their bases. Overall brown, head with scarlet reticulations, body with 5 scarlet stripes; dorsal fin with red spots and distal margin (Ref. 529, 635).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in a moderately exposed rocky reef about 3 m deep (Ref. 635). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).

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=0.01023 (0.00454 - 0.02306), b=3.01 (2.82 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.0   ±0.00 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (14 of 100) .
