Dorsal spines (total): 5; Dorsal soft rays (total): 21; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 17 - 18; Vertebrae: 29 - 30. This species is distinguished by the following characters: Dorsal-fin rays V, 21; anal-fin rays I, 17-18 (often I, 17); pectoral-fin rays 16-18 (often 17); lateral-line scales 51-55; gill rakers 3-5+10-11; predorsal scales 8-9; cycloid scales on cheek, in about 11 horizontal rows; usually 8 canine teeth in outer row at front of lower jaw; vomer with a crescentic row of 6-10 robust conical teeth; palatines edentate; angle of subopercle produced, with about 7 small spinules; 9-10 abdominal and 20 caudal vertebrae; coloration includes 6 broad red saddles across the back, a purplish red to violet line from the anterior edge of each orbit around the snout, a series of yellow-edged red spots on the postorbital part of the head and nape, and a row of dark-red spots along soft dorsal fin (Ref. 59349).

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=0.00646 (0.00285 - 0.01461), b=3.09 (2.91 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±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 (20 of 100) .
