Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 13; Dorsal soft rays (total): 15; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 15 - 16. Tubed lateral line scales 18; pale grey without conspicuous markings, except for membranous tips of dorsal spines black and juvenile with black ocellus at base of soft dorsal fin (Ref. 31101).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults are observed around rock outcrops with flat silt-sand bottom (Ref. 31101). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). Eggs are demersal and adhere to the substrate (Ref. 205). Males guard and aerate the eggs (Ref. 205).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 18 - 28.4, mean 26.2 (based on 339 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±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 (11 of 100) .
