Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 13; Dorsal soft rays (total): 15-16; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 16 - 18. Pale olive grey with 3 broad, dusky bands radiating from eye, series of H-shaped dark bars on side of body, and large black spot distally between first and second dorsal spines. Dorsal fin deeply notched; anal rays rarely 16; pectoral rays usually 14; pelvic spine not visible externally; last lateral-line tube below 10th dorsal spine to caudal peduncle; nape with 1 cirrus on each side; supraorbital tentacle blade-like without cirri; anterior nostril cirri present posteriorly; upper lip margin crenulate medially; body depth at anal-fin origin about 5.0 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults are found on exposed rocky coasts in the intertidal zone to 3 m deep (Ref. 90102). 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).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00741 (0.00333 - 0.01648), b=3.00 (2.81 - 3.19), 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 to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
