Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 16-18; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 9 - 10. This species has the following characters: body depth 2.6-2.95 in SL; scaled lower jaw; absence of fleshy papillae on edge of orbit; upper edge of preopercle finely serrate while the lower edge is smooth; margin of subopercle serrate while interopercle has 0-4 serrae; in males the front of upper lip is not thickened nor pointed and the anterior soft part of the anal fin more prolonged, fourth anal soft ray longest; caudal fin deeply emarginate with filamentous lobes; pelvic fins long, very long in males; colour of females yellow dorsally, shading on body to lavender-pink, but scale centers yellow; head yellow with pink to magenta lines; fins are yellow, the dorsal and anterior anal fin with magenta margin; color of head of males similar to females but body orange with red scale centers, changing to violet posteriorly; dorsal and anal fins are mainly orange, abruptly pale yellow posteriorly; a large magenta-edged yellow spot at base of pectoral fins (Ref. 86689).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00955 (0.00398 - 0.02292), b=2.97 (2.76 - 3.18), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±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 (14 of 100) .
