Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 16.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 48635)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 21; Anal soft rays: 4. Broader bands and diagnostic caudal fin pattern (Ref. 48635).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults prefer depths of about 25 m or more and is easily overlooked (Ref. 48635). Ovoviviparous (Ref. 205). The male carries the eggs in a brood pouch which is found under the tail (Ref. 205). Solitary or in pairs in caves and crevices (Ref 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 23.7 - 27.8, mean 26.1 (based on 42 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00050 (0.00022 - 0.00113), b=3.10 (2.91 - 3.29), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.6 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 (12 of 100) .
