Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 2.3 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 31115)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 9. Body whitish with a broad dark brown stripe from snout to base of caudal fin. Preopercle spines, 4-5. Ctenoid scales on head, cheek, opercle, and rest of the body except on pectoral base and prepelvic region where it is cycloid (Ref. 31115); characterized further by absence of prolonged spines; longitudinal scale series 24; 4-5 weak spines on rear edge of preopercle, similar size all spines; rounded caudal fin; depth of body 3.3-4.0 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits rubble bottoms in lagoons and sheltered coastal reefs. Typically hovers a short distance above the bottom, apparently to feed on zooplankton (Ref. 31115). Solitary or in small group (Ref 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 27 - 29.3, mean 28.7 (based on 1066 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00617 (0.00281 - 0.01352), b=3.08 (2.89 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.45 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
