Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 12; Vertebrae: 25. Body whitish; a broad black stripe from snout through eye, ending in upper central part of caudal fin, this stripe separated by a narrow white band from a mid dorsal black stripe. Iris yellowish. Male with yellow border on the lower edge of lateral black stripe; basal blackish band of dorsal fin tinged with red instead of yellow; anal fin darker yellow; caudal tinged with light red basally on lobe instead of bluish white. 6 branchiostegal rays. Fin spines pungent.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Common around small coral heads in silty sand-rubble areas. Generally found at depths of more than 20 m (Ref. 33411). Occurs in small groups on sandy or muddy substrates along reef margins or on soft bottom. Enters shallow estuaries as well (Ref. 48636).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 24.6 - 28.9, mean 27.6 (based on 432 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00481 - 0.02077), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±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 (24 of 100) .
