Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 7; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 9; Espinas anales 2; Radios blandos anales: 14 - 19. Diagnosis: Dorsal rays VII,9; anal rays 11,14-19 (usually 16-18); pectoral rays 14 (rarely 13 or 15). Lateral-line scales 25 + 3-5. Median predorsal scales 5-6 (usually 6). Gill rakers 5-7 + 15-18 (total, 20-24). Body depth 2.3-2.85 in SL, and body width 2.3-2.7 in the depth; eye diameter 2.7-3.1 in head length; first dorsal spine 2.0-2.9 in second spine; second dorsal spine 2.1-2.6, and third dorsal spine 2.2-2.7 in head length; spine of second dorsal fin 2.3-2.6, and second anal spine 2.5-2.9 in head length; pelvic-fin length 4.3-5.3, and caudal-peduncle length 4.9-5.9 in SL. Distance from insertion of pelvic spine to anal-fin origin 4.2-5.5 in SL. Posterior preopercular edge fully serrate or nearly so; serrae on upper part usually minute, rarely absent; ventral preopercular edge serrate on posterior two-thirds. Scaly sheath along anal-fin base well developed (Ref. 54391).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Occurs in inshore reefs of bays or lagoons, typically hovering in small groups in the recesses of caves (Ref. 1602, 48635).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 26.9 - 29.3, mean 28.7 (based on 1370 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01549 (0.00709 - 0.03381), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliencia (Ref. 69278):  Alto, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo inferior a 15 meses (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
