Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

A generally dark species that is camouflaged when on the corals. It has a series of pale blotches along the body and a pair of black spots on the back of the head (Ref. 48636).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults solitary or in pairs on algae-encrusted coralline coastal reefs (Ref. 90102) and on shallow reef flats with mixed rubble and corals where usually found on boulder-shaped corals (Ref. 48636). 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).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 28.1 - 29.4, mean 28.8 (based on 279 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00741 (0.00332 - 0.01655), b=3.00 (2.80 - 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 (10 of 100) .
