Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 11. This species is distinguished by the following characters: greatly reduced connecting membrane between innermost pelvic-fin rays, i.e., its height 23.3% of length of fifth pelvic-fin soft ray; 11 segmented rays on second dorsal fin; 33-34 longitudinal scale count; 11 predorsal scales; 11-12 transverse scale count from origin of second dorsal fin backward and downward to anal-fin base; cycloid scales in the pectoral fin base; third spine of first dorsal fin longest, slightly elongate and filamentous; slightly elongated ninth segmented caudal-fin ray, forming a pin-tailed caudal fin; 5 narrow dusky bars on head and body, anterior 4 diagonal rather than vertical; some short diagonal yellow lines on operculum (Ref. 75057).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits sandy gentle slope below coral-reef drop-off (45 m or more depths), and found to be associated with the alpheid shrimps (Ref. 75057).

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=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±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 (10 of 100) .
