Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 13; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13-14; Anal soft rays: 13 - 15. This species is distinguished by this set of characters: D XIII, 13-14; A 13-15; pectoral rays 17-18; tubed lateral-line scales 17-19; total gill rakers on the first branchial arch 19-21; yellow juvenile phase with blue stripes on the upper head and adjacent anterodorsal portion of the body; light grey to dark greyish brown adult phase with a dark-edged greenish spot just below lateral line origin (Ref. 86257).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit silty reefs around coral and rock outcrops (Ref. 86257). 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): 28.5 - 29.2, mean 28.9 (based on 662 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 (14 of 100) .
