Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 13. Diagnosis: Dorsal rays VI-I, 13; anal rays 1, 13; pectoral rays 19-20 (usually 19); pelvic fins joined by a short membrane at base, with no frenum; fifth pelvic ray longest, branched once, the branches not separated. Longitudinal scale series 80-89; no median predorsal or prepectoral scales; scales on side of nape extending to above middle of opercle. Gill opening extending forward to below middle of preopercle. Body depth 5.55-6.15 in SL; head length (HL) 3.25-3.45 in SL; caudal fin rounded and moderately long, 2.8-3.1 in SL. Pale yellow dorsally, white ventrally, densely spotted with small pale blue spots; three broad dusky red bars on body, and a narrower darker one from nape across opercle and throat, broadly bordered by yellow containing small blue spots; a faint brown bar across posterior caudal peduncle, merging with brownish red of caudal fin base; second dorsal and anal fins with a broad longitudinal dusky band, the second dorsal yellow at base with dark-edged blue markings, the anal white at base with a broad yellow margin containing dark-edged blue markings; caudal fin with a large blue-edged elliptical mark that varies in zones from brownish orange to orange red, yellow, and black (Ref. 57552).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00417 (0.00168 - 0.01037), b=3.10 (2.88 - 3.32), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±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) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
