Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 12 - 14; Dorsal soft rays (total): 5-6; Anal spines: 11-13; Anal soft rays: 8 - 10. Differs from its congeners by the following unique combination of characters: 12-13 spines in dorsal fin; 11-13 spines in anal fin; 8-10 segmented rays in anal fin; in live males, dorsal, anal and caudal fins with a narrow bluish margin and a black subdistal band bordered proximally by a bluish iridescent band, sometimes turning to reddish posteriorly; proximal part of dorsal and anal fins from dark red to black; proximal part of caudal fin red, darker in basal area; pelvic fin blue, with white filament (Ref. 56232).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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 (10 of 100) .
