Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished by the following characters: cephalic sensory-pore system lacking IT and SOT pores; 8/8 dorsal/anal fin-ray formula; pectoral-fin rays15, some branched; non-fimbriated genital papilla; non-filamentous dorsal fin in both male and female; posterior on body between anal-fin origin and caudal-fin base are 3 moderately broad internal bars; a broad orange band from top of eye and forward to ventral eye area, extending to the chin as oblique blackish bar (Ref. 94740).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in reef slopes and coralline blocks. Collected by ichthyocide, the female from a shallow slope of a fringing reef with coral patches, 5-12 m, at the seaward side of the island, the male at about 12 m from the opposite side, with a steep slope down to 30-40 m (Ref. 94740).

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=0.00631 (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 (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
