Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8; Vertebrae: 25. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following set of characters: cephalic sensory-pore system pattern 2 (only IT pore missing); dorsal/anal fin-ray formula almost always 8/7; pectoral-fin rays unbranched; first three dorsal spines may be filamentous in males; 5th pelvic-fin ray absent or rudimentary to 20% maximum of 4th ray; strong black pigment along scale pockets on ventral two-thirds of sides and peppering of dark chromatophores on nape and upper back when preserved; snout, top and sides of head red in life; dark area of abdomen not crossed by a curved yellow-gold line in life (Ref. 88933); characterized further by longitudinal scale series 21-24; scales ctenoid, none on head, breast and pectoral fin base; depth of body 4.2-5.6 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 27.4 - 29.3, mean 28.7 (based on 990 cells; Ref. 115970).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00631 (0.00286 - 0.01390), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 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) .
