Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7-8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 7. This species is distinguished by the following characters: a cephalic sensory-canal pore pattern lacking only IT and NA pores and with AITO pore positioned far forward and opening anteriorly; very long anterior tubular nares; dorsal/anal-fin ray formula 8/7; unbranched pectoral-fin rays 16; fifth pelvic-fin ray about 10% length of the fourth pelvic-fin ray; caudal-fin base with a black spot in two joined parts extending anteriorly past end of hypural plate; scattered melanophores on top of head, sometimes arranged in lines, but not as a single line of melanophores extending posteriorly from PITO pore back onto nape. When alive, body with a maroon stripe down midline of body with elongate white spots above stripe posteriorly and two white lines over abdomen (Ref. 119773).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in deepwater-reef environment consisting of large foliose and plating corals on a gentle slope and exposed to moderate currents, but otherwise protected from wave energy (Ref. 119773).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00589 (0.00267 - 0.01297), b=3.10 (2.91 - 3.29), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):   (0 of 100) .
