Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 12; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 24. This species is distinguished by the following characters: D XII, 10; 14 pectoral fin rays; small orbit diameter (in head length, 3.09-4.09, mean 3.66); blunt snout angle (79°-83°, mean 81°); body prominent pinkish-red with silvery reflection, between each horizontal scale row below lateral line are 5-6 bright cobalt or blue small-spotted lines that are visible only from oblique dorsal view, similar line of small blue spots rising obliquely above lateral line; eye with uniformly reddish-gold sheen; absence of a prominent yellow blotch in the anterior nostril and snout region; dorsal fin rays with saffron-yellow membrane but each ray is reddish-yellow (Ref. 75039).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.02344 (0.01079 - 0.05095), b=2.94 (2.76 - 3.12), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.6 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (45 of 100) .
