Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 12; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 12. This species is distinguished by the following characters: predorsal scales 18-19, reaching forward barely beyond above center of eye on dorsal midline of head; total gill rakers 15-17; dorsal fin with long spines, the first spine 7.8-8.1% SL, second spine 9.5-10.3% SL, and 12th spine 15.0-16.7% SL; anal fin's first spine 6.6-8.8% SL and third spine 15.1-17.7% SL; short maximum body length (longest specimen known 100 mm SL); sides of body with 4 narrow red stripes becoming yellow posteriorly and fifth stripe ventrally yellow; prominent black spot on fleshy pectoral-fin base; prominent black spot covering most of anterior end of dorsal fin between first and fourth spines (Ref. 75973).

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=0.01202 (0.00553 - 0.02613), b=3.05 (2.87 - 3.23), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±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 (22 of 100) .
