Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosis: (Juveniles without fully developed head canals), brown head; three broad brown trunk bars running transverse across the body below the first and second dorsal fin and at posterior part of caudal peduncle, with whitish interspaces; distinct dark spot at the end of first dorsal fin; ventral part of pectoral fins with black markings extending from the center of the fins to the tips (Ref. 44207).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in small submerged caves, sometimes associated with Corcyrogobius liechtensteini (Ref. 10711). Can occur in remarkable abundance within suitable habitats, medium and large-sized caves, with fine sediment bottom (Ref. 44207). Also found in rocky shores in deep caves in water depths from 5-56 m, usually resting directly in front of its hole and in small cavities near sea grass (Ref. 92840).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00631 (0.00286 - 0.01390), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (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) .
