Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 67-72; Anal soft rays: 51 - 53; Vertebrae: 36. Diagnosis: Dorsal rays 67-72; anal rays 51-53; dorsal rays branched except anterior 16-24 rays; anal rays branched. Lateral-line scales 71-76, including 7-8 anterior to a vertical at upper end of gill opening. Vertebrae 36; dorsal pterygiophores anterior to fourth neural spine 10. Body depth 2.45-2.5 in SL; head length (HL) 4.15-4.3 in SL; eye diameter 3.95-4.2 in HL upper eye overlapping about anterior one-third to one-half of lower eye; interorbital space narrow, the vertical distance separating eyes about one-third to one-sixth eye diameter. Caudal peduncle absent. Very fine cirri on ventral edge of head. Lateral line aligned with ventral edge of upper eye. Longest dorsal ray 1.4-1.45 in HL; caudal fin rounded, its length 3.9-3.95 in SL; pelvic fins 1.8-2.0 in HL; the tip of the longest ray reaching base of second or third anal ray. Ocular side in alcohol light yellowish brown with 3 rows of dark brown blotches, one row below base of dorsal fin, one above base of anal and pelvic fins, and one with two largest blotches well-spaced on lateral line; other brown markings mainly vertically elongate, some enclosing small irregular areas of ground color; fins pale yellowish except for faint dark blotches along base (Ref. 57560).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from a steep slope of a fringing reef, with coral rock, rubble and sand at base (Ref. 57560).

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=0.01096 (0.00511 - 0.02351), b=3.06 (2.87 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±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) .
