Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in deep coastal slopes and is known from deep water trawls, but also lives in shallow muddy estuaries. Usually in small groups of juveniles, females and a single large males. Mixes with other species of Cirrhilabrus or with Paracheilinus to feed above substrate on zooplankton. A spectacular species during display and can change from normal to nuptial in seconds, and back again (Ref. 48636).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01479 (0.00625 - 0.03502), b=2.97 (2.76 - 3.18), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.45 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (15 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
