Dorsal spines (total): 14; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-13; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 12 - 13; Vertebrae: 26. Diagnosis: In life, yellowish body with nine stripes, each composed of a series of small blue dots, extending from the gill opening to the caudal fin base; pectoral and caudal fins yellow; pelvic and anal fins dark brown to black. Dorsal rays XIV, 12-13 (usually 13); anal rays II, 12-13 (usually 12); pectoral rays 20. Tubed lateral line scales 17. Gill rakers 6-8 + 20-24 (total 27-30). Axil of pectoral fin black. Eye-sized bluish white spot (fades and darkens rapidly after death) on body at bases of posteriormost 6 to 8 segmented dorsal rays. Body depth 1.94-2.06 in SL.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from channels on the outer edge of a deep plateau, where corals, soft corals and sponges are abundant (Ref. 52528). Life history characteristics for the family specify that this group is oviparous, with distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). Eggs are demersal and adhere to the substrate (Ref. 205). Males guard and aerate the eggs (Ref. 205).

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=0.01778 (0.00800 - 0.03953), b=3.00 (2.83 - 3.17), based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.1 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 to moderate vulnerability (25 of 100) .
