Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 6 - 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-11; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8 - 10. Distinguished by the following characters: head plump, more or less rounded, dorsoventrally compressed; mouth slightly oblique, forming an angle of about 20° to 25° with body axis; maxilla extending under middle to rear margin of eye, occasionally only to front of pupil; profile of snout steeply rounded in lateral view; interorbital narrow equal to or less than one-half eye length; gill-rakers on outer face of first arch short and slender; those on second and following arches shorter; mandibular frenum without lobes; anterior nostril a short tube, posterior nostril with a raised rim; most males with first, rarely second, first dorsal-fin spines filamentous, the first reaching to last first dorsal-fin spine base to second ray base of second dorsal fin, and occasionally to the ninth dorsal-fin ray base; scales absent (Ref. 87125).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits coral and rocky reefs (Ref. 11482). Mobile-invertebrate feeder (Ref. 57615). Picks ectoparasites from other fishes.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5002   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00851 (0.00448 - 0.01616), b=3.16 (2.99 - 3.33), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.3 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 (10 of 100) .
