Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosis. This species of the Prooculis group has the following characters: body without alternating dark and pale stripes or distinct dark spots; the head with dark postorbital stripe extending across head onto body anteriorly; in life, the dark postorbital stripe is bordered ventrally by bright white stripe; other bright markings on head white or pale yellowish; the belly is bluish (Ref. 54476).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit sheltered reefs at 3-12 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).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Oviparous, distinct pairing (Ref. 205).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 28.7 - 29.2, mean 28.9 (based on 350 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01023 (0.00454 - 0.02306), b=3.01 (2.82 - 3.20), 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) .
