Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 15; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 7; Vertebrae: 26. Elongated body, depth 3.9-4.7 in SL; head length 3.1-3.5 in SL. Orbit papillae present. Supraneural bones 2. Mouth terminal in females, inferior in males as a result of a movable fleshy protuberance at front of upper lip. Third dorsal spine of male elongate, about 1.4 in HL.

Color when fresh, yellow dorsally with a broad orange band at and below base of soft portion of dorsal fin, bordered ventrally by pale blue; body pink ventrally with irregular yellow stripes on side; dorsal fin yellow with some small pink spots; anal fin greenish yellow with a reticulum of magenta; caudal fin a mixture of pink, magenta, orange, and yellow (Ref. 48242).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected on a very steep reef with ledges and caves and observed in aggregations within about a meter of the substratum (Ref. 48242). Feeds on zooplanktons (Ref. 89972).

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 (0.00391 - 0.02334), b=2.97 (2.76 - 3.18), in cm Total Length, 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 (10 of 100) .
