Etymology: Trimma: Greek, trimma, -atos = something crushed (Ref. 45335); habrum: Name from the Greek word ‘habros’, meaning delicate, dainty or graceful, referring to the soft and delicate shades of colour of freshly collected specimens.. More on author: Winterbottom.

Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 8 - 9. This species is distinguished by the following characters: a bony interorbital width equal to the pupil diameter, predorsal midline with 8-9 scales; unbranched pectoral fin rays 14; an unbranched fifth pelvic fin ray; no basal membrane joining the fifth pelvic fin rays across the midline; usually a single full row of cheek scales; scales on the upper two-thirds of the opercle; when fresh, colouration is diagnostic - a pale translucent dorsum with light yellow blotches and the base of each element of the dorsal fin surrounded by a red spot, a thin red bar along the posterior margins of the hypurals, no dark pigment at all on the hypural region of the peduncle, and a darkly pigmented covering to the dorsal margins of the swim bladder, neural sheath, and the brain (Ref. 87358).

Estimates of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00414 - 0.01920), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
