Etymology: Pomacentrus: Greek, poma, -atos = cover, operculum + Greek, kentron = sting (Ref. 45335);  bipunctatus: Named Pomacentrus bipunctatus as reference to pair of dark spots on the upper operculum and upper pectoral fin base which is its most distinctive marking and a feature lacking in other pomacentrids from the Marshall and eastern Caroline Islands.  More on authors: Allen & Randall.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species occurs in lagoonal habitats on coral reef substrates, often on pinnacle or patch reefs at depths between 5 and 43 m (Ref. 54758). Life history characteristics for the family specify that this group is oviparous, with 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): 28.3 - 29.1, mean 28.5 (based on 12 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.02291 (0.01103 - 0.04759), b=2.99 (2.82 - 3.16), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±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 (12 of 100) .
