Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 7. This species belongs to the cephalic sensory-pore group 2 with the following characters: lacking only the IT pore, has simple pectoral-fin rays, a dorsal/anal fin-ray formula almost always 8/7, and with the 5th pelvic-fin ray longer than 30% of the length of the 4th ray; however, its abdomen is not black. It is most easily confused with E. prasites and E. spilota (Ref. 89418).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from 3m to at least 12 m depth (Ref. 1602). Reported to be associated with the mushroom Heliofungia actiniformis (Ref. 91291).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 27.4 - 29.3, mean 28.8 (based on 1334 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00414 - 0.01920), b=3.08 (2.91 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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) .
