Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 12; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-14; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 12 - 14; Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: D XII,12-14 (usually XII,13); A II,12-14 (usually II,13); pectoral-fin rays 16-18 (usually 17); spiniform caudal-fin rays 2; tubed lateral-line scales 14-17 (usually 15-16); total gill rakers on first branchial arch 27-32; body depth 1.8-2.0 (mean 1.9) in SL. Colouration: in life overall yellowish brown, typically with lateral greyish to purplish stripes along scale rows; the dorsal and anal fins are brownish with dark-brown triangular marking posteriorly and caudal fin yellowish; pectoral fin with a prominent round, blackish spot covering the entire base and axil (Ref. 122787).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Benthopelagic (Ref. 58302). Feeds on planktons (Ref. 89972). Diurnal species (Ref. 54980; 113699). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). Eggs are demersal and adhere to the substrate (Ref. 205). Males guard and aerate the eggs (Ref. 205).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 24.6 - 28.8, mean 27.4 °C (based on 376 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01738 (0.00792 - 0.03811), b=3.00 (2.83 - 3.17), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.24 se; based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (20 of 100) .
