Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 6; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished from congeners by the following set of characters: cephalic sensory-pore system lacking all pores 98% of the time; dorsal/anal fin-ray formula 8/8; pectoral-fin rays 15-16, ventralmost two rays unbranched with at least 2 (but up to 4) lower rays branched at tips above this, remainder of rays unbranched; 4th pelvic-fin ray bifurcated with each branch about 60% of total length of the ray; unbranched 5th pelvic-fin ray 13-20% of 4th; non-filamentous dorsal-fin spines, tubular anterior nares short, less than ½ pupil diameter in length; when alive, body is translucent and crossed by five broad orange to red bands (Ref. 82345).

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=0.00891 (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):  2.9   ±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) .
