Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished by the following characters: scales present on predorsal midline and in a single row of 2-3 scales on upper opercle; absence of scales on cheek; second spine of first dorsal fin elongated, reaching to bases of second to sixth rays of second dorsal fin when adpressed; middle pectoral-fin rays branched; a branched fifth pelvic-fin ray with a vestigial basal membrane; no deep narrow trenches between and behind eyes; colour in life and when fresh includes yellow, orange, or red bars on the cheek and yellow-to-red spots on anterior body which lack discrete dark centers (Ref. 119475).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species is apparently rare and relatively deepwater with specimens collected between 35-70 m. It appears to be a solitary species, with only 1 or 2 specimens collected from each site. Three of the collection sites were steep reef walls exposed to significant current, with individual specimens observed perched upright in small crevices in the coralline-algae-encrusted wall. Two other collection sites were in the mixed coral rubble and sand at the base of steep reef slopes in 35 m depth, with individuals resting on top of medium-sized rubble pieces and disappearing under the rubble when closely approached (Ref. 119475).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00589 (0.00267 - 0.01297), b=3.10 (2.91 - 3.29), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
