Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-12; Anal soft rays: 11. Diagnosis: This species differs from its congeners of the Horsti complex (sensu Böhlke & Robins 1968) that have a pale stripe extending from the eye to the caudal-fin base by the following combination of characters: dark longitudinal stripe wide, reaching lower abdomen and base of anal-fin (vs. never reaching abdomen or base of anal fin); pectoral-fin rays typically 18 (vs. typically 17 in E. randalli and E. figaro and typically 16 in E. atronasum (Böhlke & Robins); anal-fin rays typically 11 (vs. typically 10 in E. figaro); oval spot present on snout (vs. no spot in E. atronasum and E. horsti (Böhlke & Robins), a "V"-shaped spot in E. prochilos (Böhlke & Robins), and a medial bar in E. xanthiprora (Böhlke & Robins), E. louisae (Böhlke & Robins) and E. lori Colin) (Ref. 52745).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found over rocky reefs and calcareous-algae banks around the island. Observed in cleaning activities during the day (and most of its life-cycle) with clients varying from large-sized carnivores such as Carcharhinus perezi (Poey) to small-sized planktivores such as Chromis multilineata (Guichenot) (Ref. 52745).

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=0.00589 (0.00270 - 0.01286), b=3.10 (2.92 - 3.28), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±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) .
