Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 11. Initial phase, color in life: upper half of head and body brown, with fine white dots, an indistinct whitish line from snout, passing over the eye and ending below posterior part of the dorsal fin; the lower half of body whitish, a broad brown stripe at the level of the lower pectoral-fin base and ending on the lower third of the caudal-fin base, the upper part of which with a dark brown spot about a size of the pupil. Terminal-phase male: body above a demarcation from the upper end of pectoral-fin base to lower part of caudal-fin base dark olive-brown, grading posteriorly to blackish color; beneath the pectoral fin across the upper abdomen is a broad, irregular, oblique blackish band; the ventral part of the body posterior to his band white; dorsal of head yellowish olive, ventral light yellowish green with a large dark blue-green area over the opercle and 2 blue lines; chin with a blue mark. 14-20 suborbital pores from behind the center of the eye to below front of orbit. Body depth, 3.1-3.45 in SL (Ref. 36378).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5010   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00446 - 0.02243), b=3.06 (2.89 - 3.23), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.3 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 (19 of 100) .
