Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 15 - 16; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 20. This species is characterized by the following: minute scales, lateral transverse scales 9-1/1/4-6; lateral line tubules terminale below end of second dorsal; minute orbital cirri, not divided; D1 shorter than D2; head, belly and nape scaleless; with vomerine teeth (Ref. 94009).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults are found on coral stones and weeds of intertidal zones (Ref. 94009). Eggs are hemispherical and covered with numerous sticky threads that anchor them in the algae on the nesting sites (Ref. 240). Larvae are planktonic which occur primarily in shallow, nearshore waters (Ref. 94114).

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=0.00550 (0.00251 - 0.01205), b=3.08 (2.89 - 3.27), 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 (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
