Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8 - 10. Body whitish with orange spots covering both body and head; a black spot at the base of dorsal-fin spines and another at base of caudal. Preopercle spines, 4-7. Well-developed basal membrane of pelvic fin, extending for most of length of innermost ray. Caudal fin rounded to lanceolate. Cycloid scales on head, cheek and opercle, also on pectoral base and prepelvic region; ctenoid scales on predorsal and the rest of the body (Ref. 31115).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in sand and rubble patches, located on ledges of steep seaward or lagoon reef slopes or at the base of these slopes. The fish lies on the bottom, retreating into crevices when threatened (Ref. 31115). Solitary (Ref 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00631 (0.00286 - 0.01390), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.5 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) .
