Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 20; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 20. This species is diagnosed by the following characters: total dorsal-fin elements 30-31; mode of D XX,11, A II,20, Pectoral 13; a short orbital and nasal cirrus on each side and unbranched, nasal cirrus longer than nasal tube; first 3 dorsal-fin spine bases close, first and second closest, widest gap between third and fourth; first spine longer or equal to second, third spine 1/2 to 3/4 of second and fourth spine shortest, forming notched dorsal fin outline in juveniles, females, and many mature males (males with the most extended first dorsal-fin spines can have a concave, but not notched, fin outline); mature males with greatly extended first dorsal-fin spine (when folded down straight reaching back to base of 8th-15th dorsal-fin spines) followed by a shorter second spine, a distal red-orange band outlined in white above and below on first few spinous membranes; females and immature males >10 mm SL with first and second dorsal-fin spines longer or equal to 12th spine (first two when folded down straight reaching back to 6th-7th spine base), first spine banded black and white; juveniles <10 mm SL with first and second dorsal-fin spines shorter than 12th spine (first two when folded down straight reaching back to 5th-6th spine base), first spine dark with light tip; all stages with last (or 2nd to last) dorsal spine shortest, ¼ to ½ longest soft ray; interorbital head pores including midline CP plus three adjacent pairs (PAF, PI, PLI) when complete (which is infrequent); evenly dispersed stippling of fine black spots over cranium (all stages except blackhead males); males and females without white spots on top of head in life; females, immature males, and some juveniles with midline melanophore stripe on snout not extending back past posterior nostril; lower pectoral-fin-base dark spots comprising one anterior rounded spot or short oblique line slanted down and sometimes additional spots (Ref. 85868).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00468 (0.00181 - 0.01207), b=3.08 (2.86 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
