Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 12; Vertebrae: 24. This species is distinguished by having D VI-I,9; A II,12; pectoral rays 13; total gill rakers on first arch 7+22; preopercular margin and ridge finely smooth; body very slender, depth 3.7-3.8 in SL; body semi transparent, whitish in life with 3-4 small dark spots midlaterally on operculum and above basal part of pectoral fin (Ref. 11894).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Swims in tight pairs (Ref. 48635); observed to occur in large aggregation around rocky outcrops with gorgonian fans and crinoids on steep slopes. Swims actively during the day above isolated coral heads to feed on zooplankton (Ref. 48635).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Distinct pairing during courtship and spawning (Ref. 205).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01096 (0.00502 - 0.02394), b=3.11 (2.93 - 3.29), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.45 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
