Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 12. Dorsal half of body dark, or without distinct markings. Anteriormost pair of teeth on lower jaw distinctly larger than other teeth. First dorsal spin in males elongated. Caudal fin emarginate or truncate (Ref. 43239).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found up to a depth of at least 25 m in lagoon, channel and seaward reefs (Ref. 9710). Often on open sand flats with large remote bommies in depths of about 20 m. Juveniles congregate on reefs, usually in depths of 10-20 m feeding on mysids (Ref. 48636). Aggregates (with females outnumbering the males) along upper edges of coral slopes to feed on zooplankton (Ref. 9710, 48636).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 24.6 - 29.3, mean 28.4 (based on 1811 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00490 (0.00205 - 0.01170), b=3.11 (2.90 - 3.32), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.45 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (25 of 100) .
