Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 15; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 16 - 17. This species is distinguished by the following characters: belly, pectoral-fin base and cheek naked; spiny preorbital bone in adults; snout blunt; 3 rows of scales above rear pored scales, the first 2 rows about equal-sized; relatively short first dorsal fin (all characters of E. boehlkei complex); red-barred or all-red caudal fin with no duskiness, dark bars, or black shading (or any concentrations of melanophores visible under microscopy); when alive, white-black-red-white-red color bands extend from caudal peduncle rearward (in breeding males caudal fin can be all red); fifth body bar darker than preceding bars and usually narrower than preceding pale interspace; second dorsal-fin membranes with broad band of fine speckling covering most of fin membranes (more than outer half) and no distinct rounded dark spots near spine bases; D III+XII+8-9; A II,16-17; mode of 14 pored lateral-line scales and 22 scales in notched midline row (Ref. 93957)

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 (0.00248 - 0.01216), 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):  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 (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
