Cirri, supraorbital 6-23, nasal 5-25; nuchal cirri 30 to 46, divided into 3-4 groups, 3-group resulting from fusion of bases of dorsalmost groups at apex of nape, 4-group condition has dorsalmost groups meeting or overlapping.

Female head and body grey to yellowish brown with spots red becoming dark brown posteriorly; with pale diagonal stripe from upper lip to nape, across orbit; pectoral fins brown. Male unspotted, bicolored yellow anteriorly and reddish brown posteriorly; pectoral fins yellow (Ref. 529, 90102, 37816).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit shallow seaward reefs, from the intertidal zone to 25 m depth (Ref. 9710, 529). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).

Life cycle and mating behavior Madurez | Reproducción | Puesta | Huevos | Fecundidad | Larva

Oviparous, distinct pairing (Ref. 205). Urogenital orifice of male genital papilla located basally between 2 widely separated slender filaments on a fleshy swelling behind anus; testes bulbous with length equal to its width (Ref. 529).
