Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 6 - 7; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 14-15; Spine anali 1; Raggi anali molli: 14 - 15. Characterized by greenish brown body color with complex pattern consisting of longitudinal rows of small white spots; side of body with five narrow brown bars; presence of dark brown band from snout, through eye, to upper back; cheek with white spots and lines; dark-edged red spots dorsally on head; large brown spot above gill opening; basal part of upper caudal fin with large red-brown to blackish spot; 1-2 small black spot on outer part of caudal fin; prolonged third and fourth dorsal spines as short filaments, first dorsal fin taller than second; rounded caudal fin; longitudinal scale series 60-67; ctenoid scales; cycloid scales on nape, abdomen, and breast; predorsal scales 22-25, extending to interorbital space; scales dorsally on opercle, absent on cheek; depth of body 3.5-4.6 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Inhabits protected, silty lagoons and estuaries (Ref. 48637). Occurs in pairs, over its burrow beneath rock or rubble; usually hovers a short distance above the bottom. Monogamous (Ref. 52884). Gut contents of a 6.5 cm SL specimen contains mainly fine, unbranched, filamentous algae and harpacticoid copepods, also polychaetes, tanaids, decapod shrimps, amphipods, and nematodes (may have been parasitic).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 25.7 - 29.3, mean 28.2 °C (based on 685 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00955 (0.00454 - 0.02011), b=3.05 (2.88 - 3.22), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (20 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 155 [67, 314] mg/100g ; Iron = 0.991 [0.536, 2.000] mg/100g ; Protein = 17.5 [15.8, 19.2] % ; Omega3 = 0.331 [0.138, 0.776] g/100g ; Selenium = 24.6 [9.0, 60.3] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 150 [37, 548] μg/100g ; Zinc = 2.18 [1.30, 3.58] mg/100g (wet weight);
