Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8 - 10. Diagnosis: White background with 8 distinct vertical bars on head and body; yellow spots on the medial fins; a well-defined dark bar across the postorbital region of the skull (may be partially obscured by the overlying anterior extension of the epaxialis body musculature in larger specimens). No scales on head. Opercle, cheek, or nape. A second dorsal spine varying from slightly to very elongate (as far as the mid-peduncle). A well-developed interorbital trench. A variably-developed postorbital trench (usually developed). A fifth pelvic fin ray which is unbranched and 50-85% of the fourth.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Solitary or in small groups on surface of hard corals. Inhabits steep outer reef slopes in 12-35 m (Ref. 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 26.3 - 29, mean 28 (based on 102 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) .
