Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal soft rays: 7; Vertebrae: 25. This species is distinguished from its congeners (and all other Bahamian gobiesocids) by the following characters: bright orangish-red coloration, yellow head, a prominent black oval patch on the caudal peduncle; pattern of papillae in disk region C; anteriorly, 2 distinct medial clusters, each comprising 8-9 closely arrayed papillae, and a single papilla anterior of each cluster, are present (vs. 2-5 papillae in each central cluster and 4-5 papillae arranged in a distinct crescent posterolaterally); posteriorly, papillae in disk region C are in a crescent pattern with a single additional papilla dorsal to its midpoint (vs. papillae in an inverted V-shaped pattern in D. nanus, D. altifrons, D. kremnobates; clumped in D. vittager); posterior margin of disk region B in the new species is strongly convex (vs. straight to weakly convex) with the rows of papillae arranged serially in a semi-circular pattern forming concentric crescents (vs. rows more or less straight); possess a total of 47 pectoral-fin rays (Ref. 91048).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Apparently closely associated with deep reefs, not straying far from the safety of a coral head (Ref. 91048).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±0.2 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) .
