Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 10 - 11. This species can be diagnosed by the following combination of characters: second dorsal fin with usually 9 soft-rays; first dorsal fin pointed with 4 and 5 elongate spines in males; pectoral fin usually with 15 soft-rays; premaxillary teeth 42-46 in <30.0 mm SL, 51-56 in 30.0-39.9 mm SL, 52-59 in 40.0-49.9 mm SL, and 64-65 in ? 50.0 mm SL; dentary with canine-like symphyseal teeth in both sexes; male lacking white patch behind pectoral-fin base; anterior half of nape almost naked in male; most of nape scaled and most of occipital region naked in female; colorations in both male and female are very unique and also distinguish them from all congeners, such consisting of black spots scattering dorsally on head and trunk of male and female, broad black bands on distal part of second dorsal fin and dorsal part of caudal fin of male, fine black spots on pectoral-fin rays of male and dusky transverse bars laterally on trunk and tail of female (Ref. 94085).

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=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (14 of 100) .
