Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Juveniles about 1-2 cm SL are often observed in association with sea urchins and in beds of Posidonia oceanica. Adults found hidden under stones covered with red calcareous algae and empty shells of mussels near Posidonia and Cymodocea nodosa beds. Among Posidonia, the species is often sympatric with Opeatogenys gracilis (Ref. 28715).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00550 (0.00240 - 0.01261), b=3.11 (2.91 - 3.31), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±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 (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
