Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 12; Dorsal soft rays (total): 14-15; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 15 - 16; Vertebrae: 30. Diagnosis: Dorsal fin XII, 14, membrane attached to caudal fin, with deep notch above last spine, first spine about equal to second; anal fin II, 16; pectoral rays 15; pelvic fin I, 4; caudal fin procurrent rays 10-12. Vertebrae 10 + 20. Last epipleural rib modally on vertebral centrum 19. LL, without scales and scalelike flaps; LL tubes 1-7, canal ends on caudal-fin base. Lower lip smooth mesially, plicate laterally. Upper lip crenulae 36-43. Gill rakers 26-27. Cephalic sensory pore system complex, no pores at the extra interorbital position. Midsnout pores present. Cirri, supraorbital 12-26, nasal 10-18; nuchal cirri 36-42, in 4 groups, ventralmost group borne on a slightly expanded flap. Body spots, extending to basal half of dorsal, anal and caudal fins in females but not in males (Ref. 529).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults occur on coral patches in surge channels of rocky reefs with light surf, 0-8 m deep (Ref. 529). 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).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Oviparous, distinct pairing (Ref. 205). Urogenital orifice of male genital papilla located basally between 2 widely separated slender filaments on a fleshy swelling behind anus; testes bulbous with length equal its width (Ref. 205).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 25.4 - 26.8, mean 26.2 (based on 28 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01023 (0.00448 - 0.02337), 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 to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
