Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 12. Body orange-brown, with pale longitudinal blue-green lines following scale rows; head with irregular light blue-green lines; opercular flap with a black spot; caudal fin white with a broad black bar on posterior part of fin (Ref. 4392). Red Sea form is slightly different. Females are distinguished by the white versus yellow band on the base of the tail and males by the lined versus spotted pattern on the body (Ref. 48636).

Indo-West Pacific: Red Sea south to Natal, South Africa (Ref. 4392) and east to Bali, Indonesia.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit lagoon and seaward reefs, usually deeper than 20 m to at least 42 m (Ref. 9710). Juveniles are solitary and adults form small groups, each with several females and a dominant male (Ref. 48636). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). Minimum depth reported from Ref. 27115.

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5002   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=-1.99000 (nan - nan), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (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 (24 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
