Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 10; Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished by the following characters: first dorsal fin enlarged and sail-like, no filamentous rays; dorsal fin bases are confluent; segmented dorsal-fin and anal-fin rays 10; pectoral-fin rays 15-17; caudal fin ovate, longer than head length, 2.5-3.0 in SL; gill opening extending forward to the level of middle of opercle; anterior nostril is sheathed in elongate, partially enclosed tube; scales are entirely cycloid, lateral scales 66-72, transverse scales 19-21; cephalic sensory-canal system including pores B’, C, D, E, F, G, M’, and O’. Body colour overall is brown with 10 or 11 poorly contrasted, darker-brown bars on lateral body; a dense patch of small white spots on dorsal surface of head; first dorsal fin orange or blue-grey with a mosaic of irregular, dark brown markings, while second dorsal fin is yellowish to brown with blue bands or rows of dark brown spots; anal, caudal, and pelvic fins dark brown with blue streaks (Ref. 121269).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The collection area is exposed to periodic strong currents and cool upwelled water with sea temperatures of 23-25°C at the time of collection in August 2019 . The specimens were observed on gradually sloping, sand-rubble bottoms, in pairs or solitary, in shared burrows with the brightly colored alpheid shrimp Alpheus randalli (Ref. 121269).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = No PD50 data   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00575 (0.00261 - 0.01268), b=3.09 (2.91 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
