Etymology: Taeniamia: Name from feminine Latin noun 'taenia' meaning ribbon or band; and feminine Greek noun 'Amia' meaning a fish, often used with cardinalfishes genera. Here as Taeniamia referring to the vertical wide bars and near vertical to curved narrow bars as lines on most of the species in this genus.;  flavofasciata: From the Latin word 'flavus' for yellow and 'fascia' for bar or stripe, referring to the dusky yellow bars on the body..   More on author: Randall.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 12 - 14. Diagnosis: Color in life pinkish gray with about 7 dark-edged dusky yellow bars on the side of the body; the dark caudal spot round to slightly oval, about pupil size.

Body depth 2.3-2.6 in SL; body width 2.3-2.7 in body depth; eye diameter 2.5-3.25 in head length; first dorsal spine 2.6-3.4 in second spine; second dorsal spine 1.9-2.3, and third dorsal spine 1.9-2.4 in head length; spine of second dorsal fin 2.2-2.75, and second anal spine 2.5-3.05 in head length; pelvic-fin length 4.2-4.75 in SL; caudal-peduncle length 4.45-5.2 in SL; distance from insertion of pelvic spine to anal-fin origin 4.4-5.25 in SL. Posterior preopercular edge usually fully serrate. Very small teeth 1-6 , usually present in a middorsal row posteriorly on tongue; extent of scaly sheath along anal-fin base at most moderately developed (Ref. 54391).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 24.4 - 27.8, mean 26.9 (based on 223 cells; Ref. 115970).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01549 (0.00726 - 0.03306), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 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 (11 of 100) .
