Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 6; Dorsal soft rays (total): 14; Anal soft rays: 12; Vertebrae: 20. This species is distinguished by the color pattern of the body with upper half pinkish, 3 longitudinal distinct red stripes ( first originating around nape to base of spiny dorsal fin to origin of soft dorsal fin, second from just behind postero-dorsal edge of orbit and along side of body to end of soft dorsal-fin base, and the third starting just behind posterior edge of orbit, running on mid body, curving very slightly down below thrid dorsal-fin spine and ending just above posterior part of anal-fin base with a short disconnection below anterior part of soft dorsal fin); snout shorter than rest of head, dorsal profile of the snout slightly concave or relatively straight (Ref. 124779).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201): 11.8 - 18.4, mean 13.4 °C (based on 12 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01995 (0.00906 - 0.04395), b=3.01 (2.83 - 3.19), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  4.1   ±0.8 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
