Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 8 - 9. This species is distinguished by the following characters: unbranched pectoral-fin rays; dorsal-fin spines filamentous in male with third spine longest; 7-8 longest caudal-fin rays filamentous in male; well developed 5th pelvic-fin ray, 55-70 % length of fourth ray (average 63 %); cephalic sensory pore system lacking the IT and the PITO pores, the AITO pore single and very large; when alive, orange pink with bright yellow midlateral stripe, yellow mid-dorsal snout stripe, and single rounded dark spot on lower portion of caudal-fin base (Ref. 93848).
Found common at depths between about 13 and 20 m, on sheltered reef slopes where it formed aggregations of up to 10-30 individuals, among live and dead corals (predominantly tabulate acroporids), and in shady crevices (93848).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00589 (0.00270 - 0.01286), b=3.10 (2.92 - 3.28), 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
