Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 5. This species is distinguished from all congeners by having unusual pigmentation pattern, on dorsum 12-16 large vertical bands from the occiput to the base of caudal fin, the bands continuous in midlateral line blotches, first band small, 6-7 vertical bands at anterior dorsal fin base, two bands at dorsal fin base, 5-7 bands between posterior dorsal fin base and caudal flexure; oval lamina circularis in males; and rounded scales with a small focal area (Ref. 95089).

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=0.00490 (0.00216 - 0.01109), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±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 to moderate vulnerability (28 of 100) .
