Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 6.5 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 7251)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 29 - 32; Dorsal soft rays (total): 0; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 18 - 20. Color varies from uniform dark brown to light brown with dark bars (Ref. 13442).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in protected shallow waters, in coral, rock or sand bottoms (Ref. 5521) especially in seagrass beds (Ref. 7251). Carnivorous; diet may vary according to seasonal and spatial changes in prey species abundance. Preys on a few species of amphipods as juveniles and shift to diet of crabs, shrimp and isopods (Ref. 94105).

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=0.00871 (0.00408 - 0.01859), b=3.01 (2.82 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
