Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished by the following characters: presence of a deep trough in the bony interorbital region about half pupil-diameter in width; with a shallow trough behind the eye along the upper half of the posterodorsal margin of the eye; naked predorsal midline, sides of nape is scaled to just behind the eye; no scales on cheek and opercle; the pelvic fins is connected by a basal membrane reaching to the tips of fifth ray, forming an indented plate; central 4-11 pectoral rays are branched; 5-6 light stripes (orange to red in life) on head and with dark blue interspaces, the body light with distinct scattered oval or round spots (yellowish-orange, orange or reddish in life); the snout is mostly darkly pigmented without distinct stripes in preserved material, but with orange stripes in life; the upper lip largely dark, except posteriorly, usually with orange stripes from the eye obscured by dark pigment on the jaws; uniformly dark lower lip; lower surface of the head with a black curved stripe and with a median black bar connecting to the lower lip; branchiostegal membranes are predominantly light, except for the stripe and the inner margin of the membranes (Ref. 100726).

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).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
