Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 6 - 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. Distinguished by the following characters: a bony interorbital about 2/3 pupil diameter in width and only slightly concave; absence of troughs or trenches in the interorbital or posterodorsal orbital regions; unbranched fifth pelvic-fin ray, 50-60% fourth ray; epaxialis extending anteriorly to a vertical in line with the posterior margin of the orbit (Ref. 100726); no elongated spines; all pectoral rays unbranched; longitudinal scale series 23; absence of predorsal scales on midline; 1-2 deciduous scales on upper opercle; depth of body 4.0-4.1 in SL; semi-translucent pink on upper half of body (straw-yellow, translucent above midlateral septum, Ref. 100726); midlateral stripe is broad and reddish orange in color; breast and belly, white; narrow light blue lines below eye, dorsal midline of snout and behind upper rear corner of eye (Ref. 90102).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits coastal reef slopes and lagoons. Found along reef margins with rubble (Ref. 48637). Also found in caves and crevices, often on drop-offs in 3-35 m (Ref. 90102). A relatively rare species in collections, usually been taken in lots of one or two specimens (Ref. 100726)..

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 26.3 - 28.9, mean 27.8 (based on 302 cells; Ref. 115970).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00412 - 0.01928), b=3.08 (2.91 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
