Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 15; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 16. This species is distinguished by the following characters: belly, pectoral-fin base, and cheek naked; adults with spiny preorbital bone; 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); fifth body bar is usually slightly darker than first four (not much darker than fourth) and usually narrower than 4-5 interspace; accessory interspace bar or darkened patch between the fourth and fifth body bars (yellow-ringed with dark-speckled center in life, especially ventrally); dusky red bar just behind fifth body bar; dark or dusky red bands on caudal fin, usually more than 2, often broken; usually no pale band dividing dark snout forward of eye; second dorsal fin with 3 rounded dark spots on membranes near spine bases and thin band of fine speckling on outer rim of fin; anal fin with 4-6 dark patches; modal fin rays D III+XII+8, A II, 16; 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 = 0.5001   [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), 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) .
