Etymology: Trimma: Greek, trimma, -atos = something crushed (Ref. 45335);  macrophthalmus: Origin of name not given, but presumably from ‘macro’ for large and the Greek noun ‘opthalmos’, meaning eye; originally spelled as ‘macrophthalmus’, and the spelling is retained because the second half of the specific name is a noun; thus treated as noun in apposition.

Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 7; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 9-10; Spine anali 1; Raggi anali molli: 8 - 9. Very similar to T. okinawae but lacks predorsal scales (Ref. 37816).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 24.1 - 28.8, mean 27.5 (based on 420 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00418 - 0.01902), b=3.08 (2.91 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
