Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. Diagnosis: Predorsal scales and a bony interorbital about pupil diameter in width. Second dorsal spine elongated. Fifth pelvic fin ray branched dichotomously once and 55-80% of the fourth. Scales on cheek absent; one or two cycloid scales on the upper opercle; usually two rows of scales anterior to the pelvic fin base. Snout and lower half of the caudal peduncle with a slight sprinkling of melanophores. A broad, rounded, median ridge present on the snout and anterior interorbital region. Unique to the genus, a large, bilateral, open nasal pit, instead of the usual nasal sac with anterior and posterior openings (Ref. 55345); characterized further by semi-translucent pinkish, abdomen and most of head reddish pink, merging with tapered pink stripe to middle caudal fin base; midline of snout with blue-white spot; internal white stripe above vertebral column; longitudinal scale series 23-25; predorsal scales 6-8 (Ref. 90102).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from a quiet, sheltered bay (Ref. 55345). Inhabits sheltered bays in 9-26 m (Ref. 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 25.2 - 29.3, mean 28.7 (based on 1128 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) .
