Western Indian Ocean: Chagos Archipelago.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits mainly oceanic drop-offs; in and around caves in vertical walls. Probably a schooling fish; feeding on plankton but radiolarians in the gut may indicate some feeding off the substrate (Ref. 38635).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00417 (0.00161 - 0.01081), b=3.13 (2.91 - 3.35), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±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) .
