Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished by the following characters: D Vi+I,0; A I,8; both head and body naked; distinct groove between isthmus and interopercle; deep body (the depth at pelvic-fin origin 40.4-44.3 % SL) and strongly compressed; juveniles with rounded head, large adults with steep profile, slightly hump-headed; caudal peduncle relatively slender (depth 14.8-16.0% SL); colour of juveniles and adults dark reddish brown with greenish subcutaneous gleam on dorsal part of body; median fins plain (western Pacific Oceans) or with pale margin (Red Sea and Indian Ocean); iris plain light blue (Red Sea) or scattered with red-brown dots on the outer margin (Ref. 94082).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs on reef flats, crests and upper reef slopes in less exposed areas; and prefers Acropora selago, but also occurs in a number of other, narrowly branched Acropora species such as A. acuminata and A. hyacinthus (Ref. 94082).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 21.8 - 27.7, mean 26.2 (based on 807 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01995 (0.00906 - 0.04395), b=3.01 (2.83 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±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 (10 of 100) .
