The type locality Minami Daito Island was called 'Ufuagari-jima' (jima means island) by the Okinawan people before 1885 when the Meiji government of Japan first landed.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 6; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 39 - 43; Vertebrae: 25. This species is distinguished by the following characters: scale rows above lateral line 6 1/2-7 1/2 (usually 7 1/2); pored lateral-line scales 62-71; scales are weakly ctenoid, thin, semicircular in shape, far wider than long, and deciduous; convex snout outline in anterior part of orbit; tip of dorsal fin broadly black, the rest is bright yellow; base of anal fin blackish; distinct blackish band on outer margin; posterior margin of caudal fin blackish, the rest bright yellow; distinct blackish spot on pectoral-fin base; absence of villiform tooth band extending outside lips on the upper and lower jaws (Ref. 92923).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Apparently occurs in underwater caves or crevasses in coral reef areas during the day, but found in open water at night (Ref.92923).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 20.5 - 26.2, mean 23.5 (based on 113 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01585 (0.00666 - 0.03770), b=2.99 (2.78 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (32 of 100) .
