Etymology: luxata: The name 'luxata' is derived from the Latin, meaning dislocate, in reference to the diagnostic character of the species herein described, the separate pelvic bones.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal soft rays: 10; Vertebrae: 28 - 30. This species is distinguished from all congeners by the medial processes of left and right pelvic bones relatively reduced, not overlapping each other at ventral midline. It can be further diagnosed by the following combination of characters: four to six regular rows of small circular spots of dark brown chromatophores on body side, more apparent along caudal peduncle; absence of a swelling between the urogenital opening and the anterior base of the anal fin in females; 12-16 predorsal scales; absence of a large dorsal convex expansion at subdistal segments of right half of sixth anal-fin ray of adult males; eye diameter of females 26.1-33.1% HL; and absence of a distinct rounded spot on dorsal pectoral-fin base (Ref. 94152).

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=0.01175 (0.00512 - 0.02696), b=3.08 (2.88 - 3.28), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±0.4 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 (14 of 100) .
