Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-11; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 10 - 11. Easily identified by the dark black bar extending downward through the eye and the yellow-brown body color; during courtship, both males and females with 9-11 black bars on their flanks and a red border on the edge of the dorsal fins; black eye bar becomes prominent; males develop a dusky flush to their throats and lower jaw (Ref. 44091). Largest Insularigobius recorded; possesses a relatively high scale count in horizontal series, 47-52, usually 48-50; high predorsal scale count, always fully scaled, 16-23, usually 19-20; belly anteriorly almost always scaled close to pelvic base; breast always with many embedded scales; up to five rows of teeth in upper jaw and up to six in lower jaw (Ref. 34009).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A poor climber and thus restricted to the lower reaches and adjoining brackish waters; found in both altered and unaltered streams; omnivorous and a benthic feeder on filamentous algae, worms, crustaceans and insect larvae; not highly sought as food by the early Hawaiians (Ref. 44091). Benthic (Ref. 58302).

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=0.01148 (0.00605 - 0.02179), b=3.08 (2.91 - 3.25), based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.6 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 to moderate vulnerability (28 of 100) .
