Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished by the following characters: scales in the predorsal midline; no scales on the cheek or opercle; elongated second spine of the first dorsal fin reaching to the bases of the 2nd-8th second dorsal-fin rays when adpressed; unbranched pectoral-fin rays; fifth pelvic-fin ray branched with a full basal membrane; when fresh, yellow bars on the head and vertically elongate yellow spots on brown body (Ref. 119765).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species appears to be a rare species, with seven specimens collected mostly between 10-16 m. Found living under large pieces of dead foliose coral rubble on a sandy bottom subject to moderate currents and wave action. It is apparently a solitary species, only a single specimen collected from each piece of rubble examined (Ref. 119765).

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):   (0 of 100) .
