Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 60 - 61. Distinguishable from all the other species of Alabes by its low number of vertebrae and from all but A. hoesei in having 2 postocular pores. It differs from A. hoesei in usually lacking a posterior nasal canal pore, having more epipleural ribs, and a larger gill opening.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs among weed and rock, limestone reef platform (Ref. 11331); also in seagrass and in vegetation growing on shallow coastal rocky reefs (Ref. 56640).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5005   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00102 (0.00046 - 0.00225), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.2 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) .
