Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 14; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8. Snout somewhat pointed. Preopercular notch and knob moderately well developed.

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Introductions | Faunafri

Western Pacific: restricted to the east coast of Australia and New Caledonia. The main Australian distribution is off southern Queensland between Cape Moreton (about 27°S) and the Capricorn Group(23°S). This species has been usually referred to as Lutjanus amabilis by previous authors.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults mainly inhabit coral reefs. Sometimes forming large aggregations around rocky outcrops during daylight hours. They disperse to feed at night (Ref. 9710). Usually marketed fresh.

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01660 (0.01121 - 0.02457), b=3.03 (2.92 - 3.14), based on LWR estimates for species & Genus-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.6 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.26-0.34; tmax=40).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (38 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   High.
