This species is distinguished by the following characters: body moderately elongate, depth 2.5-2.8 in SL; posterior edge of orbit without papillae; fleshy protuberance at front of upper lip absent in male; lateral line scales 36-38; gill rakers 9-11+20-24; presence of small triangular patch of vomerine teeth; D X,15-17, with slightly elongate third dorsal spine in males, 2.2-2.5 in HL; A III,7; pectoral rays 17-19; lunate caudal fin, caudal concavity 1.9-2.7 in HL. Colour of male mainly orange-red to yellowish with brown scale margins posterodorsally; presence of broad yellow band behind eye, bordered on lower edge by pink stripe and above by moderately broad red band continuing above eye and across interorbital; reddish median fins with narrow bluish outer margin; reddish yellow pelvic fins with faint violet hue on inner part of fin; translucent to slightly yellowish pectoral fins; female yellowish red with narrow pink-edged yellow band extending from lower rear corner of eye to base of pectoral fin (Ref. 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00933 (0.00384 - 0.02270), b=2.97 (2.77 - 3.17), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
