Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 12; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 18; Spine anali 2; Raggi anali molli: 19 - 20. No median row of cirri; supraorbital cirri branched (Ref. 26938). With numerous small brown spots; small black spot at front of dorsal fin; edge of anal fin pale (Ref. 13442).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit eroded basins and limestone boulders covered by an algal mat, sea fans, etc. (Ref. 5521). Sometimes around mangrove roots, young are sometimes found in floating Sargassum (Ref. 26938). Omnivorous, but feed mostly on algae (Ref. 13442). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 23.5 - 28.2, mean 27.2 (based on 572 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00977 (0.00418 - 0.02283), b=3.01 (2.83 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.5   ±0.23 se; Based on food items.
Resilienza (Ref. 69278):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100) .
