Ascending process of premaxilla long, extending past orbit into interorbital space; lateral process very long and pungent. Gill rakers long and slender, longer than half the diameter of pupil. Interdorsal scales 8-10. Distinct crescentic mark present on snout immediately in front of eye; upper part of midlateral band terminating as half crescent on upper lobe of caudal fin.

Pacific Ocean: Sumatra and the northern Cook Islands, north to the Philippines, Caroline Islands, and Marshall Islands, south to Fiji.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Preferred habitat appears to be deeper enclosed atoll lagoons, reefs, coastal waters and harbors. May gather in schools at night when attracted to light but generally not found in very large numbers. May be taken as food by larger commercial species (Ref. 9760).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=-2.40000 (nan - nan), b=3.13 (2.91 - 3.35), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±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 (23 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Medium.
