Western Pacific: southern Japan southward. Reported from the Indian Ocean (Ref. 45255). Randall & Pyle (2000, Ref. 48242) note that Pseudanthias manadensis has not been convincingly linked to any species recognized today.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 9.5 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 559)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Highly variable in color. Females have an orange to red spot on the back, centrally at the base of the spinous dorsal-fin, that elongates in larger individuals and males. In some males it shows as a yellow bar and some large individuals have extended tips on the caudal fin (Ref. 48635).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits rocky reefs. A deep water species, usually in depths over 40 m and appears to occur primarily on current-prone soft-bottom slopes (Ref. 48635).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 24.2 - 28.5, mean 28 (based on 93 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01413 (0.00610 - 0.03270), b=2.98 (2.79 - 3.17), 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):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100) .
