Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 14; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 11; Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished by the following characters: D XIV,11; A II,11; pectoral rays 18; spiniform caudal rays 3; tubed lateral-line scales 14-17; gill rakers 7-8 + 19-20 = 27-28; depth of body 2.0-2.2 in SL; sides of body with alternating blue grey and brassy yellow stripes; abdomen and lower part of head blue grey; fins are bluish except the base of caudal fin which is brown; apex of anal fin with a prominent black spot (Ref. 82433).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from the type locality with rubble and low-profile coral reef substratum at the base of a steep, nearly vertical drop-off, 42 to at least 65 m depth (Ref. 82433). Life history characteristics for the family specify that this group is oviparous, with distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). Eggs are demersal and adhere to the substrate (Ref. 205). Males guard and aerate the eggs (Ref. 205).

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=0.01778 (0.00800 - 0.03953), b=3.00 (2.83 - 3.17), based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.1 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 (13 of 100) .
