Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 9; Vertebrae: 26. This species differs from the other species of the spinosa complex in having the following set of characters: cheek spines 6-10; all are short and the similar in size, length of longest spine 1.6-2.2% SL; first dorsal fin with no filamentous spines; distinct black spot on first dorsal fin absent; caudal fin base with a small vertically-elongate ovoid black spot; head and body, except for minute, dusky and slightly faded orange or yellow dots, have no vivid reddish orange spots ; underneath the eye is a distinct, narrow ventrally pointed vertical black bar (Ref. 75136); characterized further by absence of prolonged spines; longitudinal scale series 23-24; ctenoid scales on body, becoming cycloid anterior to pelvic and pectoral fins; rounded caudal fin; depth of body 4.0-4.4 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in coral-reef slopes, in protected bays, and found solitary on muddy or sandy-mud bottoms with dead-coral rubbles In the area. Associated with Its congener, A. atripes (Ref. 75136).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 24.3 - 28.8, mean 27.8 (based on 218 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00414 - 0.01920), b=3.08 (2.91 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 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.).
