Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished by the following characters: absence of the POP and IT cephalic sensory-canal pores; dorsal/anal fin-ray formula often 8/8; some of the pectoral-fin rays are branched; fifth pelvic-fin ray 20% or less of fourth pelvic-fin ray; under eye are 3 dark bars; first dorsal fin of male is filamentous; male urogenital papilla is smooth and tapered, peppered with small black spots (Ref. 109221).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from fringing reefs, gullies with sand, encrusting corals, and algae and large bommie surrounded by coarse sand, coral rock, and algae, both habitats at 0-6 m depth (Ref. 109221).

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=0.00589 (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):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
