Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 12 - 16; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6-8; Anal spines: 17; Anal soft rays: 13 - 17; Vertebrae: 29. Can be differentiated from its congeners by the following combination of characters: caudal fin forked; opercular spot pale or missing; spots and bars on dorsal and caudal-fin membranes brown, red in life; soft rays in unpaired fins pale brown; predorsal and subdorsal back reddish and body above anal fin base iridescent blue to green in life; body with 10-12 faint and inconspicuous dark bars; top of head and predorsal body without dark spots; posterior tip or margin of scales on body conspicuously darker than scales; distal part of first soft pelvic-fin ray red in life (Ref. 42924).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [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), 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) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
