Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 8; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-13; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 12 - 14. This species is distinguished by the following characters: D XIII,12-13; A II,12-14; pectoral rays 17; tubed lateral line scales 14-17 (modally 15-16); total gill rakers 28-31; scaled suborbital; body depth 1.6-1.7 in SL; colouration of head and nape grey, body silvery white, suffused with yellow, becoming more yellow ventrally and posteriorly; dorsal fin is grey without black markings; anal and pelvic fins are yellow to yellowish grey; caudal fin have whitish rays and transparent membranes, the upper and lower edges are narrowly black to blackish; upper edge of pectoral fin base with a very small black spot (Ref. 82240).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). Eggs are demersal and adhere to the substrate (Ref. 205). Males guard and aerate the eggs (Ref. 205).

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=0.02239 (0.01068 - 0.04693), b=2.99 (2.81 - 3.17), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.3 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 (22 of 100) .
