Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8 - 9. Diagnosis: This species is characterized by the presence of predorsal scales; second and third dorsal-fin spines elongate; moderate interorbital and postorbital trenches; no opercular scales; and, scales across the top half of the body outlined with pigment. The fifth pelvic fin ray is branched sequentially once or unbranched depending on the capture location and living specimens has three yellow stripes extending along the body, two stripes in the dorsal and anal fins (one dark and one yellow) and a red or cerise iris with four large, irregularly-spaced yellow spot (Ref. 57544); characterized further by having longitudinal scale series 22-24; predorsal scales 6-9; depth of body about 4.2-4.4 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from a drop-off wall with a few small caves, coralline algae, antipatherians and numerous hard corals (Ref. 57544). Inhabits reef walls and rubble in 10-60 m (Ref. 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 26.1 - 28.9, mean 27.9 (based on 170 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) .
