soft rays: 7 - 8;
Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinct from its congeners by the following characters: D VI + I, 9; A I, 8 (usually); some pectoral-fin rays are branched; cephalic sensory-pore system pattern 2; 2 diffuse to prominent dark spots at the base of pectoral fin; fifth segmented pelvic-fin ray present, usually about 1/10 length of fourth ray; and 6 subcutaneous bars/spots on lower postanal trunk (Ref. 59013).
Collected from tidepools and rock and coral reefs in lagoons and reef slopes (Ref. 59013).

Estimates of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00419 - 0.01894), b=3.07 (2.90 - 3.24), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 3.1 ±0.3 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 (10 of 100) .
