This species is distinguished by the following characters: D V,21; A I,17; pectoral fin rays 17; lateral line scales 55; gill rakers 7+11=18; predorsal scales 10; cycloid scales on cheek; canine teeth 6 in outer row at front of lower jaw; vomer with 2 rows of teeth, robust and conical, with anterior row much enlarged; palatines without teeth; margin of preopercle and subopercle smooth except the angle; vertebrae with 10 abdominal and 20 caudal; pelvic fins barely
reaching the vent; colouration with a series of 9 large oval-shaped and yellow-ringed red spots that are midlateral on body and caudal fin (Ref. 116166).
No available data re habitat or depth of capture, it is likely to be relatively rare and occupy at least moderately deep habitats (Ref. 116166).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00646 (0.00294 - 0.01416), b=3.09 (2.91 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 3.4 ±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
