Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 13; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 11-12; Espinas anales 2; Radios blandos anales: 11 - 12. Adults dark olive brown dorsally, abruptly white ventral to lower edge of eye and pectoral base; dorsal and caudal fins yellowish posteriorly; a black spot at upper base of pectoral fins; juveniles bright yellow to yellow-green on upper third, abruptly violet on side, shading to whitish ventrally; a bright blue line from front of snout to upper edge of eye (Ref. 13442).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit outer and seaward reefs. Feeds on plankton (Ref. 5521). Taken incidentally in traps and small-meshed beach nets (Ref. 5217). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). Eggs are demersal and adhere to the substrate (Ref. 205). Males guard and aerate the eggs (Ref. 205).

Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01479 (0.00674 - 0.03244), b=2.99 (2.80 - 3.18), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.45 se; based on food items.
Resiliencia (Ref. 120179):  Alto, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo inferior a 15 meses (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
