Color of body of males lavender-red dorsally, shading to pale lavender ventrally, the scales below lateral line with yellow centers; head orange-red above a bluish white line from lower edge of orbit to lower base of pectoral fin, pale orange below; dorsal fin translucent orange-yellow with a lavender margin; anal fin translucent lavender with a row of small yellow spots on membranes; caudal fin red, the upper and lower edges and filaments pink; pelvic fins light red. Scales above lateral line to 2nd dorsal spine 6, middle dorsal spines 3.5 (Ref. 48242).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Specimens collected over rocky substrata, usually at depths greater than 25 m; with the use of rotenone and quinaldine (Ref. 48242). Feeds on zooplankton (Ref. 89972).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 27.7 - 28.4, mean 28 (based on 25 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01413 (0.00610 - 0.03270), b=2.98 (2.79 - 3.17), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 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 (17 of 100) .
