Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished by the following characters: interorbital trench absent, merely a slight depression between and behind eyes; incomplete squamation on predorsal, a naked triangular area behind eyes and interorbital area, and a naked bar extending forward from origin of first dorsal fin; in specimens below 20 mm SL midline usually naked, anterior extent of predorsal scales on sides of nape increasing with increasing size; no opercular scales; no scales on cheek; D2 modally I,11; A modally I,9; pectoral rays usually 19-20; reduced transverse pattern of sensory papillae on cheek; pelvic fins connected to form a plate, no interspinal membrane, fifth ray branched; each scale pocket with concentrated melanophores along margin forming a diamond-shaped mark; preserved specimens with vertical bands on head, often none on body; in life, 1-2 very faint vertical bars under first dorsal fin; mouth oblique, forming an angle of 35°-45° with body axis (Ref. 85603).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in rocky and coral reefs from the intertidal to depths of over 20 m (Ref. 85603).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 21.2 - 23.6, mean 22.6 (based on 4 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00418 - 0.01902), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.3 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 (11 of 100) .
