Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 7; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 8-9; Spine anali 1; Raggi anali molli: 7 - 9. This species is a member of the T. tevegae species complex (sensu Winterbottom 2005) with a broad interorbital space and a greatly expanded first haemal arch. It is further characterized by 15-18 predorsal scales; the second and third dorsal spines elongate; a fleshy, longitudinal ridge in the interorbital midline; absence of postorbital trenches; scales covering the cheek and opercle; the fifth pelvic fin ray usually branched dichotomously once; a pattern of six dark saddles across the dorsum on a pale yellow background; and, large adult size (to about 30 mm SL) (Ref. 59339).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Inhabits outer reef slopes in caves and crevices in 57-73 m (Ref. 90102).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 27.2 - 28.2, mean 27.8 (based on 7 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) .
