Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 8 - 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 24. This species is distinguished by the following characters: 7 visible first-dorsal spines, the 8th spine hidden by skin; darkish circular spot on the opercle, below opercular spine within a pale area; color in life, uniformly reddish to brownish body, all fins pale; pectoral rays 13-14; predorsal scales 5; eye diameter 10-12% of SL; pectoral fin 25-31% of SL; body depth 37-40% of SL (Ref. 77037).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A cryptic species seldom observed by divers, but are collected with ichthyocides, dredges and sleds. Its collection data suggests that it frequents 10-40 m depth zone, in association with beds of a calcareous algae, Halimeda or calcareous rubble, sometimes mixed with the pocilloporid coral Seriatopora hystrix (Ref. 77037).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 26 - 29, mean 28 (based on 318 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [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):  3.2   ±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 (10 of 100) .
