Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 6 - 8. Rugose genital papillae in both sexes. No IT pores; POP pores absent or greatly reduced. 4 - 6 large spots on ventral midline posteriorly from anal fin origin; subcutaneous bars associated with some ventral-midline spots. Fifth pelvic fin ray small, unbranched, about 1/10 length of 4th ray (usually poorly ossified). Anterior-most branch of 4th pelvic ray elongate, at least 10 segments. Dorsal spines in D1 not prolonged as filaments. 9 - 17 pectoral fin rays may be branched (Ref. 38034).
Found only in shallow (<4.6 m) sheltered habitats, either at patch reefs well back in the bay (no surge, silt, and mud surrounding the coral) or from fouling communities on dock floats (Ref. 38034). Benthic (Ref. 58302).

Estimates of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00419 - 0.01894), b=3.07 (2.90 - 3.24), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 3.0 ±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) .
