Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 16; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 7; Vertebrae: 26. Body moderately deep, 2.7-3.1 in SL. Head length 3.05-3.2 in SL. Posterior edge of orbit without papillae. Caudal fin deeply emarginate to lunate, the caudal concavity 1.5-2.15 in head. Males without a fleshy protuberance at front of upper lip; third dorsal spine moderately elongate, 1.6-1.85 in HL. Females in life orange-pink with a vertically elongate dusky spot on each scale dorsally on body, the spots becoming yellow ventrally. Males pink, shading to orange anteriorly and pale lavender ventrally, with a red bar on side below 8th and 9th dorsal spines, the same yellow band on the head as females but brighter and a conspicuous red spot in dorsal fin between 6th and 7th or 8th spines (Ref. 48242).

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

Western Central Pacific: Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Loyalty Islands, and Fiji. Recently recorded from Tonga (Ref. 53797). Except those from Fiji, specimens collected are not listed as paratypes because of the difference in gill-raker counts.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs on moderately deep reefs (Ref. 48242).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=-1.93000 (nan - nan), b=3.03 (2.81 - 3.25), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±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 (13 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
