Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 71-82; Anal soft rays: 52 - 61; Vertebrae: 40 - 44. This species is characterized by the following: Vertebrae 11-13 + 29-32 = 40-44, dorsal fin rays 71-82, anal fin rays 52-61; outer pseudoclasper wingshaped with single curved supporter anteriorly; inner pseudoclasper club-shaped, with prominent appendix inserted at posterior-distal angle; small fleshy lobe at base of hood adjacent to outer pseudoclasper, penis tapering; opercular spine with single, sharp tip; scale patch on cheeks with 6-9 vertical scale rows; otolith length: height ratio 2.2-2.3; green pigment globules in head and body mucus (Ref. 57883).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits rocky and coral reefs, in depths down to about 15 m. A few specimens are known from mangrove habitats. A 58 mm SL female specimen contains about 50 eggs, diameter 0.3-0.5 mm and 55 embryos, 6-8 mm TL, with 2 long rows of pigment spots along mid-body and dorsal fin base (Ref. 57883).

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=0.00447 (0.00175 - 0.01142), b=3.10 (2.88 - 3.32), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.5 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 (12 of 100) .
