Dorsal spines (total): 18; Dorsal soft rays (total): 4; Anal spines: 7; Anal soft rays: 4; Vertebrae: 27. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: D XVIII,4; A VII,4; pectoral-fin rays 18; caudal fin not connected to last rays of dorsal and anal fins by membrane; caudal peduncle with a pale yellowish brown bar, which extends broadly on to caudal fin (Ref. 95091).

This species was collected on a small reef platform (about 3 x 1 m), with small corals on sand, on steep coral reef slope. The coral slope with mixed patches of corals and caves and extended down to a depth of 30 m, becoming a sandy slope below this depth (Ref. 95091).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00457 (0.00176 - 0.01185), 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):  3.0   ±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 (10 of 100) .
