Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10 - 13; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-13; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 7 - 10. The breeding male of this species, a member of the subgenus Doration. Is distinguished by: the following characters: spinous dorsal fin with blue-green marginal and submedial bands, red-orange medial band, basal band lacking bright orange pigment; soft dorsal, caudal, and pectoral fins without distinct orange spots on rays; soft dorsal and anal fins with bluegreen in base of fin; face and lower head gray with blue or blue-green on operculum, preoperculum, suborbital bar, lips, and mid-gular region; quadrate lateral blue-green blotches with narrow continuous midlateral band of melanophores running through blotches; blue-green wedge on ventral half of caudal fin base but not developed dorsally. In addition, the frenum is absent; lateral line is incomplete, unpored scales modally, greater than 10 (14); cheek is usually naked; presence of palatine teeth; dorsal fin spines modally 11, soft rays modally 11; anal fin soft rays modally 9; pectoral fin rays modally 13-14; principal caudal fin rays modally 15; caudal peduncle scales modally 16; preoperculomandibular canal pores modally 9 (Ref. 92294).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00513 (0.00205 - 0.01282), b=3.14 (2.92 - 3.36), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 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) .
