Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Perciformes (Perch-likes) > Pseudochromidae (Dottybacks) > Pseudochrominae
Etymology: Pseudochromis: Greek, pseudes = false + Greek, chromis = a fish, perhaps a perch (Ref. 45335);  oligochrysus: Name from Greek that means 'having little gold'; referring to the “having little gold”, alluding to the scant, though distinctive yellow markings (when viewed underwater, the yellow markings around the eye are distinctly obvious, as are the bright yellow pelvic fins.  More on authors: Gill, Allen & Erdmann.

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Marine; reef-associated; depth range 25 - 65 m (Ref. 90102), usually 40 - ? m (Ref. 89054).   Tropical

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 25-27; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 16; Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: D III,25-27, usually III,26; A III,16; 16 circumpeduncular scales; 21-27 predorsal scales; horizontal scale rows above anal-fin origin 13-15 + 1 + 3 = 17-19; rounded caudal fin; upper part of pectoral-fin base with a dark spot; anterior part of body with yellow spots or markings (Ref. 89054).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Exclusively found in reefs subject to strong currents and frequent cold-water upwellings; associated with coral overhangs or large rubble pieces on hard bottom substrates. When approached, individuals retreat under the rubble or overhang (Ref. 89054).

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=0.00589 (0.00241 - 0.01439), b=3.10 (2.88 - 3.32), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (12 of 100) .
