Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 8.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 7299)

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits rocky pools amongst dense clumps of submerged water weeds and dead branches (Ref. 2906, 44894). Presumably the species has a high tolerance to increased salinity levels and water temperatures, which typically occur in the habitat during drought periods (Ref. 44894). Males with slightly pronounced hump on forehead (Ref. 5259).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.2 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) .
