Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7 - 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 27-30; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 22 - 24. Color variable, usually grey-blue and posterior part of the body often paler or yellow (Ref. 48636).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults are found solitary in coastal, lagoon and seaward reefs from below the surge zone to 30 m depth (Ref. 9710, 90102). They feed on skin, scales, fins and mucus of other fish. 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). A mimic of Meiacanthus atrodorsalis (Ref. 2334).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 25 - 29.3, mean 28.4 (based on 1729 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5005   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00562 (0.00261 - 0.01211), b=3.04 (2.85 - 3.23), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.4   ±0.80 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 (15 of 100) .
