Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 25 - 30; Dorsal soft rays (total): 14-16; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 25 - 27; Vertebrae: 44 - 46. Snout profile steep, line drawn through tip of premaxilla across ventral margin of orbit touches or passes anterodorsal to dorsal extremity of preoperculum. Transverse groove in front of first dorsal fin containing cephalic sensory pore. Scales absent in front of first dorsal fin first spine, naked immediately adjacent to first dorsal, but many small ctenoid scales adjacent to post-temporal. First lateral line scale with one group of ctenii at upper posterior edge, second scale onward, with two groups of ctenii at upper and middle posterior edges. Dorsal fin formula V-0N-0-1-0-1 (Ref. 84085).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults occur in rocky shores and occasionally in exposed rocky pools (Ref. 13227). Also common on wharf piles among encrusting invertebrates. Depth to at least 7 m (Ref. 84085).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00550 (0.00251 - 0.01205), b=3.08 (2.89 - 3.27), 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 (15 of 100) .
